  • Poems interleaved with stories,
    novels interleaved with memoir,
    letters interwoven with photos,
    projects lost among projects.

    Hope, ideas, dreams, all
    mixed together, infecting
    each other, informing each other,
    pushing me, rushing me.

    An incipient avalanche
    poised to sweep me away.
    A to-do list longer than my arm.
    My hidden mess

    no longer secret.
