longer than I thought

I didn’t realize how long I had been gone — almost 2 weeks since I had checked in last! I’m sorry, m’dears. I’ve been dealing with an unhappily pregnant GI tract (cue that stupid Pepto jingle), a visit from my MIL, and a visit to PA for my parents’ birthdays and my brother’s performance in his HS musical. Still been uber sleepy, but I *think* it’s getting better.

Also, been busy with chapbook stuff. Still talking about an April release. We’ll see. Down to the last of the revisions though, at least. Now for organization… Even have the cover pretty much put together. So it’s moving, or lurching, forward.

Haven’t written anything in weeks though. I need to take some brain fiber. I’ve got some constipation of the head. There’s crap in there that needs to come out, but it’s stuck. I know I’ll feel better once it’s done, but for the moment, it’s kinda painful…

(I know, that’s gross.)

Maybe I’ll force something out today.

torch bearing quietly

I will not act out, will not
yell or curse or slam doors,
will not make a scene -- you
do not deserve such a chance
to make an example out of me
to be proven right since you
are not. Instead, I'll stand
at this street corner, raise
my hand high and clench that
light which yet remains. It
will burn brightly, quietly,
fiercely before fading as I.

Then I'll be gone but found.
