Welcome to the second installment
in a new series of poems and art 
inspired by Christina Rosalie's book a field guide to NOW.

She says
Who are you
when you slip from 
the scant shirt of definition?

I am a shadow
reaching toward the light
like a lover
seeking illumination

I am a wound
trying to heal
skin stitching itself together
raw and open
vulnerable to infection

I am a collection of contradictions
a confusing mass
 of oxymorons

I am an endless labyrinth
full of mysteries
and paths that lead
 to nowhere

I am a blooming flower
settling into my roots
reaching toward the sun
