Half heartedly the glue gun wields to mask my anxiety
Facing a certain compilation of expressions of fear
If this idol would ward off spirits that cause reality to flee
Fertile grounds for tribal rituals, loss of scientific methodology.
Is your inner child annoying you?
Buy it an ice cream and sit and chat.
What things sustained her?
Sitting in a group of 4 women waxing philosophical
I giggled and played with Words.
