Yesterday you began to share with me Quick shrieks from their tapping shoes shouted as a slight reminder we were in the real though this recollection is dripping In lethargy. Your chip began to shimmer in the dimmed, shared air Your pain and strength barreling against one another for a place to burn in your eyes I saw it then Different than any other time I had seen it before Softer Quieter, yet somehow more powerful than ever. I understood it then. We are the juxtaposition, The cool, supple texture from the rawness mocking our conversation. You fought to be here and ****** to hell with the rest.
