Morning in progress

When did I lose the capacity to cry?
When did my tears dry up like wells in the desert heat,
Like sleeping volcanos afraid of the destruction they would spew forth on their countrymen should they choose to live,
Like the desert cough that comes from an angry night only wanting the rains to fall and make earth give fruit.
When did I lost the capacity to cry?
When did my strength become a wall over which you could only wave a flag to indicate your love,
Where a mother's hug is shielded in a layer of kevlar and grit
Where a brother's send-off is masked in a feast of gluttony and fear
When sleep is only a rock and a pill away
near the rusted metal and debris that serves as blankets for my shadow.
When did I lose the capacity to be?
Like a sculpture asked only to resemble
to endure,
to represent.
When did I lose?

Something I just found in my notebook from a retreat

All mixed up,
nothing cohesive.

You are strong!

my life

Couldn't lose it-
their lives depended on me-only me
if they wanted to live.

Countless wounds...
some big, some fleshy, gaping holes--
some where they looked like we
were trying to kill

his soul...

Comments/suggestions always welcome!!

Don't forget the deadline for this is 15 August!!! Would be great to have some WW work included. Also, if you have a workshop--let us all know how it went. I know the Brooklyn workshop recently added a new member to our org!! That's great!
