land among the stars

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

but the stars are falling

(psychiatric hospital)

1848 – 2010

 

 

 

 

 

the old couple

 

 

 

 

 

 

two old souls
hanging out
ragged around the edges
perfectly comfortable

 

 

 

 

rhythm

 

 

 

 

 

she finds comfort in routine
the ebb and flow
the rhythm
of  everyday
even when it’s rough

especially when it’s rough

 

 

 

begin again

 

 

 

 

 

 

“i don’t pay attention to the
world ending.
it has ended for me
many times
and began again in the morning.”

~ Nayyirah Waheed

she once made me a rag doll
with a mop of yellow yarn hair
