    Empty Factories

    My poetic practice (from a poem of mine):

    Sometimes you walk around the corner
    and bump into the right word waiting there, smiling
    to embrace your thought.
    She's lovely in the shadows
    and even more radiant on the page.

    Once in a while, a strong emotion
    wakens you from your slumber,
    lifts you up and transports you
    to where you've never been,
    let's you molt your previous life
    and breathe air so fresh
    it has a taste.
