Atrophy

Erin Lyndal Martin




I dream you are a live wire, you are alive: Stumble upon me and bloom
and let the almost bloom.

The live wire is me, the almost, the live wire stumbles upon the almost.

I am an are, a strange and stumbling are, I paper the walls with almost
and wake almost stunned.
