"The Wires Are Fragile"

previously unreleased

the wires are fragile
as fragile as dry sea grass
when rain is lost in thought
and no wires can hold
the drought together
cause when you touch carelessly
it breaks into a revolution of dust
the wire and the sea grass
have to be nurtured
we power with resoluteness
and strength of character
cause we can’t hold dust
we can’t appreciate dust
when we turn to dust
we rain
the wires are fragile
yours, poetess, AGF
