[currency of words]

Edward L. Canavan
[currency of words]

poetry is survival

embedded in the bones

the muscle memory

of tending empty gardens

and learning to make do

with next to nothing

thriving in the dark fields

of loneliness and lost soul

finding endless new ways

to feel alive

in the shadow

of every dying
