expand your ribs. inhale. slick of cool air. a good memory sipped.
exhale. slowly. til your lungs feel pinched. till there’s no more air. to give.
can you feel your body yet?
to the wilderness that is being human.
blood. bone. shadow. smoke. sun.
plunge into these pages. courage is your friend. do not fear. what cannot be known.
sift through. the murk and the muck. till you get to the truth.
lift the veil. we are all connected.
story is how we tell.
