[ a bigger me, a me that is always becoming ]
when growing out of myself
sometimes even just a little bit
the extension of the territory
of mind, heart.
I, then, fail to feel
or understand how I once was smaller
unable to find the courage of my own
and how dependent I had been
waiting to be rescued.
instead of reaching for what touches my heart.
a nuance inch-grow seems to
cast a chemical effect to the whole.
