    They left me when I gave up on their dark fairy tale— the one they tell empaths as children: to twist yourself into knots like an old forest tree and you’ll live happily ever after. But in solitude I touch my roots and feel my magic.

Puffs of foggy shouts crystallizeas we fall into softblankets of sky snowready to soften the blow. We play tag with shooting starsand Double Dutch withthe Constellations,our laughter rings through the Milky Way. Then along comes Nightsweeping ...
