the clarity a balcony in the summer brings:
last night it’s almost as if the world had decided to purge the hate that we had learned to carry on our backs.

there was a pain in the air that I had never felt comfortable with. that I had never shared before with someone and the trees.

I love my balcony and this balcony poem. “Ghostwritten lives” is such a good phrase!
captures the mood
