on hope

it may surprise you
everything is functioning
heart still has a pulse

~

n.b. Never give up.

the nine

caught in bed
trapped
by the mechanism
in that moment
crushed

we watch, wait, adapt
to your painful progress
we learn
to live with
inconvenience

we wish you well
but must press on
with the demands
of our digital world
regardless

On Dreams ix

Is it possible

to call back and reshape dreams

based on harsh home truths?
