IX

practicing tenderness with

the eyes

the fingers

the palm

where is it coming from

that beautiful hug

squeeze tight

am i ok?

tied up like a christmas gift

or

a mental patient

restraint is not my color

freedom is

softness is

lay with me please

a curious stretch

a new view 

upside down

a conveyer belt to nowhere

 

XIII

she comes alive in the night

enchanted by her own thoughts

discoveries

an endless universe of questions

and answers

her day on replay

rewind, fast forward, play, pause

remember this moment

soak it in

fast forward, play

her own life unfolds before her eyes

restraints lifted

infant's first steps

wobbly but steadfast

find your footing / find yourself

she still worries about sleep

but the depth of the night sky

is so seductive

a black velvet cloak

the queen on her throne

tissues scattered on the floor 

beneath her

rumpled sheets and a song

on repeat

rewind, play

the moon is moving through

me
