Here Is

A next attempt.

close up of a tasselled wobbegong in a coral reef

To stay in a body and stay porous,

To maintain devout involvement 

with the shattering senses.

To salvage in a moment

some rescue for the next,

when this––attendant?

riddled with punctures

and verging brittle 

is needing renewal

    1. What awesome encouragement, Alex. Thank you. I should probably print this one out as a reminder to keep at my desk : )
