hours ago I wrote this now
I don’t know this
writing this crown begging
belief weighing empty

design a spindly flower
seeking sun from black pit’s floor
spindly flower seeking water
in desert stretching drowning

(a ghost won’t need) to touch
anything to touch
with hands confirm
I made this I was here

I was here

This week, Yeah Write offered the prompt, What weighs you down? Mulling that over, drafting this, sleeping on it, I realized that among other things, I was still processing Rowan’s essay.
