Over-watering the “essential” suffocation


the last push, the first act
a small cry resonates
piercing through an infinity
defined by darkness
hardly heard. hardly noticed. hardly forgettable.

new is the word
born anew, felt anew
a youthful softness  
tiny, precious, & beloved
seemingly untouched
a sprout, its structure frail
single in color   
leafy. baby. green.

seemingly unchanged
natural by design
the flow of this kind
dribble. drizzle. drop
all right in time

never enough
pour. dump. drown
unnatural by “choice”
broken, battered, & beloved
fake smiles. unheard cries. darkness defined.
