Between Places

The need that will not stop

the need to create for ourselves

 

speak with our hands

scribble with our minds.

Make, shape, build

add colors from inside.

 

Be

bolder than

we trust ourselves to be.

We share wisps of tender fear

kept hidden from view

 

like a shield of insecurity

tucked behind the ear.

Wary of those that come

with a look unfamiliar.

 

Remember

the power of the

impermanent paint

to include.

Lines drawn

to dare a crossing

or

to encircle all.
