there's a draft due soon and yet I write. there's only hope in help and yet I write.

shake and stay

 

I know a tremble like a beat.

Self-medicate, meditate, simmering

crumbling to submission

a position under his thumb

under my thumb

I don’t breathe like I used to.

I don’t work as I’d like to.

Areas to improve swivel

final gestures of decaying competence.
