a hole, a backbone, and balance

Page


You have to find balance with this new life. The hole that made you fall over isn’t going to go away. So you look towards your backbone and with much grief you ask, “can you adjust so that I can go on – so that I do not die.”

But there is no guarantee that your strength will come through for you and so you better be ready to request it again and again.

But your back will always hurt now because it leans. It’s rude to fill the hole up with waste so you have to fill it up with memories only – though it will never be enough to bring you into balance ever again.

    I like the image of the hole filled with memories and the crooked back, but I think they sound a little haphazardly thrown together, especially in the last section. I think a more concrete tie would make the piece stronger.
