these cracked feet, cracked hands and crackling lines around my eyes

whisper in harmonious healing.

the weeping and seeping of water has dried.

a tortoise shell; a vacant nest; a notebook whose pages have been burned.

yesterday is a vanished ache.

good-bye.

Bruises.

Poem 3. Written by SnapDragon X.

. . .

i will not stop.

the cause is too important.

among the pencil shavings and piles of seemingly perfunctory paper

i continue to speak.

i see you.

i hear you.

i love you.

and i will not give up the fight.

How Nice.

how nice it is

just to sit

in silence

and be.

how nice it is

to rest my weary ankles;

to have no other purpose

than to exist;

to blink my eyes

with impending sleep.

how nice.

yes.

how very nice, indeed.

there is a delicate fluttering within me

stitched down deep,

that keeps us together after all these years.

the constant spinning:

may it never grow weary;

may it remind you of

everything that was and will be.

. . .

SnapDragon is, perhaps, just another brick in the wall.
