smoke signals

In liminal space

hands shaking, stomach churns
it never gets easier

jackhammer knuckles
paper-bag lungs

no one has to wonder
where they stand
with me

unsustainable
tiptoeing around the bush
or beating on eggshells

brashness is a vice

I’m unrepentant
I refuse
to be seen and not heard.

Studying for my PHR. That’s pronounced “PHArrrrghhh!” Well okay, that’s a lie, but it probably should be.
