if I stand here
balancing air
in my palms

as if weightlessness
for something

as if feathered breath
is a factor
in final choice

it is because dreams have form

and can be
tangled inside
those intricate
threaded catchers

that seem
to hold nothing

and that is what I am doing

weighing substance
in thought

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
