unplug my wire
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.

let
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.

secrets
are what i keep safe
and what keeps me a mother.
