Chapter 10: Sublime Reality
(113 poems written between March 2016 and June 2017)
In a period of a little more than a year, so much changed–but also so little. We moved from Washington D.C. to Durham, North Carolina, but we didn’t leave trouble behind. Harsh truths were met with as much optimism as I could muster. My old truck was breaking down, freelance was grinding me down, my mind was opening to the beauty of my new world.
My joy was bolstered by an addition to the family: Dash. My heart grew with her as she grew to love her new home, but still, my polyamorous nature lead to feelings of being incomplete.
