i'm spinning in a teacup this week.
only i'm not turning the wheel.
all is blurry
where is the clarity?
everything is puzzling
what can i be sure of?
who can i allow behind
of my abode?
he is knocking
dare i answer?
right and wrong are so hazy.
are there such things as this?
do i dare enter any deeper into this abyss?
they are warning me not to.
they say they dont want me to get
swallowed up by the blackness
i feel like i already did
a long time ago.
did anyone notice?

when i was a little girl, i wanted to create a fossil.
i gathered a smooth stone,
carefully picked a green leaf off of the aspen tree
in our front yard,
and placed it atop the stone.
i kept it in a shoe box in my closet.
i checked on it every day to see if it was a fossil yet.
i asked my teacher when it would becme one.
and after that my hopes of creating this
as strange as this sounds,
this was more of a shock to me than santa not being real.
