  • I’ve been struggling to sleep
    for the first time in my life
    I know why and there is nothing I can do (I won’t take pills)
    The body, mind and spirit must process trauma in their time
    I can’t command them to do what I want
    or hit the reset button

    I do what I can do
    I write and let the stories and pain out
    One at a time into the cowbird universe
    I am humbled and appreciative for the support
    It makes me more passionate about the arts
    and the artists whom inspire me,
    nourish me with their words, images
    all the manifestations of their consciousnesses

    On this day as the light comes creeping in
    I send my gratitude out to my fellow conspirators
