my molten eyes and sudden smile
there are years behind what you see
more than your assumption of me
images across a screen
scraped knees and willow trees
dirt paths and lace dresses
whispered secrets with my mother & father & sisters
shouted secrets with my friends
I am more than
the sum of thousands of years of history
and the stories of my family
I am oceans and sand and soft green grass and finding arrowheads in piles of stone
journeys under endless skies and the sky was left behind under the pink city glow
And we shout so desperately that we are! We are human and we live/think/exist! Let me prove to you that I exist with one simple formula! The universe must know…we must know…I must know…
I am waiting here for you to find.
what you thought you knew.
