  1. OH, this is magnificent. So painful and FELT. And hopeful.

    I like the form of this one, too–the lines interspersing the narration of the walk punctuate and pull against it.

    • Jennifer, thank you so much. You are always so kind and generous in your comments.

      This is definitely an experiment for me. I didn’t know what I was doing with this for the longest time. It finally coalesced into something late this evening!

      I’d like to format the lines in italics so that they begin just after the ending of the title, but I can’t figure it out and it’s late.

      With gratitude, Andy
