tonight: story; you’ve written me.

“Anything you forget to feed will die. Feed the important things if you want to keep them alive.”
Ryan Detzel

you are into story
the way some people write letters
wanting the recipient caught up on life
you write down stories
on hearts and in minds
wanting the recipient to grasp the invite:

hands out of pockets
and dirty with the stuff of happenings
feet shorn in boots
clung to by endless trappings
beauty not of surface enchantments
beauty of substance, enduring antics
producing wholeness, breaking strife
teller and participant both awakened, alive.

invitation received
a word, believe
humanity reprieved
eyes open, i see
this story has chapters yet
and you’ve written me
well, so well.
