“Detritus Has No Soul”


I Stood, Longing
By Lisa Nielsen
Inspiration piece

I stood on the edge
past the yellow line
and the train’s rush
daring your anger to push me.

Defeat took me back to the apartment
waiting for the blows.

What does it feel like to be nestled in,

Would I dare dream

That I could
dial the phone
and have you show up
arms wide
ready to grab my bags
and save me?

    This is stunning. I am so lucky to have a partner in Spark such as Jay Blessed. Fortunate. Inspired. I will use this gorgeous painting to light me up for our next round.
