with a break
of heart, and fear
this journey came.
Alice Walker whispered
"each one pull one",
packed her bags, came with me.
and I saw into the mud
where your feet walked
where my feet (shod) left marks.
i am bookmarked 
between poetry, keyboard, muscles, whiteness:
it is a small gesture Alice,
I pulled. And I pulled.
