I write for fun, to help me understand what's going on. I am a traveller without ground under my feet. I keep searching.
- In Absentia - You are imperfectly absent unlike god, you are in the empty house too big for me. You are outside, in the thick ancient walls where I run my hand and make my finger bleed. You reverberate in the space, surprised by my voice uncertain. You are the absent answer to a cry stifled in my mouth with a handkerchief. You are not where I reach out, when I try foolishly, because I know the house is empty, the bed all mine, the shoes too big for me
