This morning the photographer asked me to stop writing poetry as if you might read it., Every night it’s a different face, I know someday, And I don’t know how to feel, My buddy’s, I’ve gotten good, I don’t need to adapt, Every poem here, I don’t know where these words lead – I have so many now, Please, When lava escapes, To ice, Ginanaakomigoom Nimishoomisinaanag
