every day i am aware of my own limited capability, or, when people talk about me they don’t talk at all

it’s snowing
and blowing 30
but
this is Alaska
but this is
Spring
but this is a rainforest
but it rains
a lot but we are ready
for sun
even those of us
more inclined towards
a moon
and we live here
for a reason
even if our reasons
aren’t such that we feel
comfortable sharing
so we come up with
reasons to share
that we feel are more
palatable as we ourselves
hope that others may find us
palatable and that we
may find our own
selves worthy
of maybe not
a feast
but at least a
break from fasting.
