In the liminal spaces between poetry collections, I will be periodically posting previously unpublished hand written fragments,the orphaned odes that did not find a home in any collection.
This is the 13th such fragment of some of the copious couplets and isolated ideas that did not turn into full form poems, but that you may find resonance with. I wanted to highlight where even the embryonic nature of two lines of rhyme can come from and maybe what full works they were influenced by or would go on to influence.
“Balancing” is the journey from point-less to the whole point ,along the life wire.
The “low wire” above the “high fire”, where it is literally one step at a time, one foot in front of the other, above a fire of your own making. Making it to the other side comes after deciding to make that journey itself, which is the hardest part. The weight of your decision making the pyrotechnic precipice all the more perilous as the wire reaches it’s elastic limit.
I am delighted to say that my first collection, Be.aGaIN, has been released globally on Apple Books
