These numbers grow. Others join at the front of this line labeled admirers. More eyes follow. More hearts treat the beat and this cuts a strut through an urge I thought was over. Sometimes not having something means no one else is allowed to have it either.

Lamed Aleph Vav

This phone screams in the silence that is hers. It is annoyed. Frayed… and unfulfilled in feeling unfulfilled. From here I can hear the silent roar at mirrors that may no longer confirm she is the fairest of them all.

Lamed Kaf Bet

The universe and all in it since this known forever have amassed much sage advice. Be true to yourself. Be kind to others. Listen to your body. You only live once. Dance. And… sometimes… it’s not a bad thing to look behind you.
