the healing muse

Volume 13, 2013

Recovery

Andrea Potos

So this is it, the hour
by hour decisions
of the body to go
forward or
to stay, some days
to step back
and wait,
as if the glare
of all that light may be
too strong to take in
all at once, as if
the enormity of life awake
must be accepted
unanimously, cell
by astonishing cell.
