Thoughts, fears, loss; all pile, unnamed.

Pour concrete into despair
Reveal color, shape, texture, and dimension

    yup – or, find enough energy to get mad and rage against the dark/night/injustice – whatever keeps ya going till the abstract is more manageable or you can live with it – :). But that’s just me – folks accuse me of being angry at times, and all I can say is, “well, good thing I get angry, otherwise, I would’ve given up decades ago – ” Whatever works to hold on until one is certain and not just listening to ghosts – 🙂
