nothing is sacred
except the most feelings

& those are caught between the teeth
of the beasts we feed tears

& dragged, unspooling
what is our fine
in threads

a spiderwebbed trail
over & through

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?

    With the slightly odd phrasing that leaves you ‘hanging’ a little, I got a sense of being spooled out – which is kind of awesome – you are clever 🙂

    What a circumstance this conjured,
    of a pick up dragging down a road one’s emotional essence, a slaughter of the spirit.

    I’m seeing a lot of changed minds this morning. How far they change, we’ll see.
