Defining “Vermin”

Why do we loathe such
These creatures that adapt well
To our wastefulness

Squirrels, rats, myriad insects, and so many other creatures that have adapted well to living in the shadow of humanity. These we loathe, finding beauty in those struggling to find a place in the world we’re rapidly changing. 


Fear Has Plenty Of Company

There are many fears
They will never be lonely
I can leave them be 

It’s so hard, sometimes, to disentangle from my fears. They are so deeply interwoven into my life. Yet I’ve rooted out many over the years. 

May you be freed from fear’s inertia. From its attempts to rob you of joy and wonder. 

And may your Sunday recharge and invigorate you.
