and replace it with that of the lamp
i'd unplugged for my own. acknowledge balancing
as a delicate thing to do, something that calls for many steps.
apologizing is political, acting
upon awareness is, at least, a response. it involves.
my dog out. turn the porch light on for him.
talk about him.
let you know it's my dog that brings me joy, and is my guardian
in that way.
when i go to bring myself joy i lose my sight, so i don't know how i look in this respect. so that means i didn't feel joy when it happened.
i know a monster
like how my stomach is showing.
say i'm going to learn from it
because i'd like to be a good listener.
are what i keep safe
and what keeps me a mother.
