recycled passages
torn from fragile pages
a history in parchment
flaking and handled
over and over
by avid and bored alike
re-used emotions
whispering in the heart
filling gaps of loneliness
tempering in steamy clouds
the raw and capable
instigating choices
re-purposed livelihood
skitters on the frying pan
tickling the temple
exciting like new blood
surging through veins
of loveliness and grace
