edges are my place. 
i breathe like i belong here.
i remember my selfself
here in the edge.
i grow quieter 
i grow complete.
i begin to see how it is to be
a human being. 
this muddled woman, 
of mixed up organization
of strong heart
of heat
and, let's face it,
longing and ardor.
yesterday was may day.
it's spring.

A walk with a dog... the best edge from which to start Spring.
