“Deal of the Week” is an updated take on the horoscope column. Bad advice, worse poetry, every Monday.
The renewal you’re facing scores your brain and body.
It snakes like some burning fluid flooding tendons and flushing blood currents healing through capillaries stinging and singing with rebirth. We should give each mother and baby the same courtesy, honor their flaming fluids alongside ours and inhale their pain and life and sing together, together we feed on the hope we extract and exchange back and forth forever. Stop stealing stop stealing the pain for the life of your own wounds, let it die in its course and wait for the next little baby to cry.
