enter. shift. return.

Abandon all hope, ye who enter here. – Dante


this poem is a perfect storm 
waiting. debating. grating 
on tired skin. she’s in a mood, 
brewed too strong and too 
weak to find herself in any
-thing but ink. 

she thinks. she dreams. she 
screams in sunlight and quietest 
of rain. she’s only slightly sane, 
steeped in scattered leaves. 

she’s wander-worn 
and weary, she’s torn
and in
-complete. 

nothing left now 
to do, but 
command one option.
