2023 – Let It Be Messy

Like the rogue wheel

on a shopping cart

Or a blind stubbing

of your toe in the dark

The ups and downs

and chaos of it all

The unsteadiness

The unknowns

The defeat when you fall.

Like a river of tears

that somehow lights your way

Unwilling to be silent

Unwilling to be ok

A beautiful mess

at least 60 inches deep

Lowering you just enough

it’s hard to stay asleep

A delicate rain

nothing more than a sprinkle

A deep breath

A moment

A pause

A wrinkle.

I don’t need change

I don’t need something new

2023, the only way out

is through.
