right up front or fast

my ancestors

never come to me

right up front or fast

they come slow


corner of eyes


I’m doing right

honourable things

which can be awkward

at times

not thinking good thoughts

doing decent deeds

feel like being kind to myself

lying in bed at night

we understand each other

most of the time

I can give them goodbye

can we do this later?

other times they hang on

what about now?

& I have to give in

get up do their bidding

create the ritual

cleanse the day

end any bad blood

honour our connections
