Dirty Laundry

Twitter
throws out
Trump’s dirty laundry
at our feet.

Facebook
washes it out
with comments.

Instagram
walls it from
entry.

Angels
prohibit it
from adding
to the Apocalypse.

God’s power
is deeper
than the media
cleaner
fresher
dried in the sun.

Soft Edges

the edges-opens us for

Elizabeth Gilbert
 has encouraging words for people who come to writing later in life: “Writing is not like dancing or modeling; it’s not something where — if you missed it by age 19 — you’re finished. It’s never too late. Your writing will only get better as you get older and wiser. If you write something beautiful and important, and the right person somehow discovers it, they will clear room for you on the bookshelves of the world — at any age. At least try.”
