in this sugarless
goodbye. we’re locked

but we’re also
the key. there is

a story within
these cracks in
timid tremble

float, afloat.
up, up, and

  1. I love this! I have never heard the brain described as ‘wrinkled-
    thinking-machine,’ that’s just perfect! ‘

    ‘we’re locked

    but we’re also
    the key.’

    That’s how I feel the more I practice meditation.
