My dingy descent didn’t happen overnight. Each step is an independent entity containing a varied amalgam of components including conscious/unconscious conditioning, fear, impulsivity/ premeditation, peer pressure, focus, practice, tap dancing, blind leaping, thoughtfulness/ thoughtlessness, kindness/cruelty, and so many other motivations/de-motivations. Addictions, also motivated by these, have lubricated the process. Likewise-situated folks like us clot together like spoiled crud at the bottom of an abandoned milk bottle.
Jericho’s voice bounces off of the stairwell,
“Free sandwiches and hot coffee.”
From the first sip of the ceramic mug’s medium roast contents, my shoulder blades wriggle with the nubs of wings.
Angels may appear when least expected and help us lift ourselves with our own wings. Small acts of kindness may bring the seeds of great things.
