1 Heart it! 7

Tiptoe past the bear

in our garage.

Careful meaning fearful

meaning double taking it all in.

I remember this.

Trading halves and pieces,

busted parts of the person

who should not have tried.

I am older now

smiling like a kid,

and we waited for you

to come home

to the sleepy town

with faded eyes.

When you are awake

it does not matter

where you are.

You are here.

-Jacqui Hathaway Levin, The OAM
