July 4th, 2018

knots in my stomach

for not knowing how to feel

something is awry but what?

how many more times

can I lose my innocence?

bramble around my heart

so catholic, dramatic

but its a real feeling

like pierced by thorns, deflated

defeated and accepting

there is no better or worser

Jamie's birthday again

what does it mean this time?

our Peter Pan friend

that pervasive kindness

with no effort or motive

that isn't even a kindness

it is a curiosity

just natural

all I know is I'm going away

and I'll try to make

everyone proud
