It's Hard to Grown When You're Still Holding On...
From Memo to Self by Ruth Lewis:
I have been as one
Loathsome, lurid green,
As one truly seeking purity
but unable to unpry my
stiff, reluctant fingers
from those long-tailed,
I unpry my still-stiff fingers,
one by one.
At long last, loosening my hold,
letting go of my beloved lizards
one by one,
learning to live life
