You think you know me –

          you don’t know me.

I am still in formation


a nascent malleable state.


I am drawing lines –

          thick and some thin

to find the shapes I can

fit inside

and those that intersect my limbs.


I am coming at you

with my ironclad will

       my repertoire of tricks

              my intelligentsia drawl

and a haiku footnote

drawing the eyes down


cold man wind

freezing unclad eyes

.... nauseam.

Bravo Aspasia. Succinct, profound and masterful. We all to try to calibrate ourselves along our respective journeys and consequently try to re-mould

Well done

Thanks Tom. Something about it still doesn't quite sit right with me, so I wasn't even going to post it, but I appreciate the feedback.

Thanks Corey
