Another Day, Another Scan …

… and another polite euphemism.

This one is ‘a shadow’ … where no shadows ought to be.

To find an emotion that rings true.

Then I watched this video.

It makes sense now.




“Poetry is a matter of life, not just a matter of language”Lucille Clifton, 1936-1010, writer, educator, poet.

    “Every day something has tried to kill me
    And has failed”

    That is one wonderful sentence.
    May things fail to kill another day.
