it is in my contradictions that earth meets sky. this sweet awareness of how things don’t fit together makes the perfect quilt; patches of memories and unconscious desires keep me protected from lack of exposure. my uninvisibility cloak that renders everything blood and bones hide. truth set against a backdrop of fiction. by the power vested in me, i, the ego, promise to love cherish and obey all that frightens and makes me feel uncomfortable. ’til life do us part.
