  • Love and gravity
    and the graces that hold hands around me

    In a word

    The way
    the world has rooted us

    Gifted me
    with better mes

    Inner circle
    of quirk and caprice

    Gifted you
    with model hearts

    Look up
    and meet their gaze to see

    Your aunts’
    embrace awaits thee
