the half: (to alexis, in flight)

(made out of an in-flight magazine
on the way home from NYC
on the artist's 26th birthday)

1. Grow
Crazy, wild and crooked as you want to be.
Your roots in this vision are deep.

2. Look up.
Your faith in yourself
is the bridge to where you're going.

3. Don't be ashamed of crying
The seeds of your freedom
need are
water thirsty
4. Remember what peace looks like.

5. Read your dream close.
Touch them
trail them
like maps
to who you already are.


7. Raise ancestors
like babies

in your gut.

8. It's NOT one of these.
9. Reflection is soul.

10. some gifts are traps
and vice versa

11. know when
to bend and when
to break.
12. Play on.

13. you

Hey Lex, I thought this was a really powerful piece. I like that you made it while you were literally in flight, too. Thanks for sharing lots of good stuff.
