new year

“A story has no beginning or end: arbitrarily one chooses that moment of experience from which to look back or from which to look ahead.” 
― Graham Greene, The End of the Affair

i feel it

the beginning

even if

the lines are arbitrary


may i have this dance

with the universe

going round and round

in the uncertainty of existence

in the bubbling fear

of perishment


may i have this spin

in the love 

of all the stars

the winking


the steady


may i have this life

to go away

then come back




trying to find home


may i take your hand

and persuade you

to be the witness

as i move my body

to the pain

to the music 


my heart beat

to the sound 


our breaths

happy new year! how are you?
