  • For so long I performed my ritual underground.
    Unnoticed, not replied to, fearful but free.

    Since peeking out, discovering the breadth of world beyond,
    I’ve strengthened, weakened, strengthened, weakened…

    As I try to guess what ears might want to hear
    Instead of the realness of my singular hoarse voice.

    Thank you for connecting, all you lovely Cowbird dreamers and actors. Your support and love is real. The doubts are my own.
