To you — Yes, you— I hope you take up some space in this world. With your body, your voice, your enormous bleeding heart— in the beautiful imperfect way that only you can. I hope you stay weird, and make mistakes, and get lost, and laugh way too loud, while you are out there being you. I will love you for all of your messiness, for simply trying to stay you— in a world that keeps trying to make you some smaller version of who you were always destined to be.

"For it is our cracks, The eroding edges of our soul, That keep us needing the salve of each other’s touch."
"I read this collection in the midst of the COVID19 pandemic - socially isolated and physically separated from many of our loved ones - this poem hits home. The rest of the poems are touching as well. Dr. Vasa is able to create beautiful imagery and emotion from a simple collection of words."
