If Not in the Flesh


Poetry explores the possibility of what "could be"

Allowing me to create a World that under any other circumstances could not exist 

Thoughts and feelings that verbally can not be expressed seem easier this way 


Can you see me?

If not in the flesh, can you see me through these words?

Do they paint the picture of who I am?

Do they show you the potential of who I could be?

That's what poetry does for me



Carry the weight of these words 

Poetry will be how i am introduced to the World
