how far one
can actually travel
to see the good idea
forced in greenery

whereas once
you see it outside
the life it's lived
a person you are supposed to
trust but don't know
that well that both
good and bad decisions
get made

changing is giving
myself the body
back


—Dot Devota

Continuing to work my way through The Volta Book of Poets, stopping to add gold star-shaped post-its to its pages. I have lit my lavender thinking candle, so you know today is a real work day.
