Cherita: What is


Is the writer the words


and nothing but the words

or a beating heart, feather-winged,


that the wind may buoy

on the waves of the ocean sky

or dash to the starless ground?

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
