“Another Nine Eleven …” was written to offset impending threat. I was in a serious place of uh oh when I wrote that. I was wrestling with being a victim and that was what came out. I wanted the words to make me safe. Words can’t make you safe.

“Words I Haven’t Read Yet” is my typical. My typical feeling like a piece of shitness. I am tired of writing about feeling this way but it’s the only thing I can do unless I just fully succumb which is something I don’t want to do.

“My Hand Holding …” started as one of my love letters and digressed into I’m not sure. I’m sorry.
