what happens quietly
in front of us
cockroaches led by wasps
silent crickets
mayflies born without mouths

how do we sleep
in the middle of
mindless need?


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?
