what are our non-neutral languages? collaborative generating #6

Collaborative Manifesto Project: here.

Love is a conflict.’ – Jean-Paul Sartre (via Claire Donato)

I look in the mirror and I see my mother.
She stands at four foot ten, barely tip-toeing.
She tells me, the road not taken is a single letter.
The clicks of her teeth fade and become white noise
like a television on mute for hours. At 2:36am, a couple
in love gets married somewhere in Vegas, between the
hours laid between the folds of midnight and dawn.
When I look in the mirror, I see my mother. Married at 23.
I’m late for 7am coffee. Some men were gone and small things
become like sea glass. I don’t ask forgiveness. Instead, I give.

Collaboration and inspiration from all, Ching-In, Paul, Evangeline, Carol, Nikki, Todd, Matt, and many more. Thank you.
