Eating Your Words for Longevity and Health

Living in a desert  
is a landscape

...without answers  
 
For one example  
mommy-shamers’  
 
Big claim to fame  
is  
 
no book  
with their name  
 
a new  
...virtue signal  
 
stoic non-support  
no humble  
handout taken  
 
in the spirit  
it was given  
 
who cursed  
it?  
 
spelling trouble  
in negative spaces  
 
Peering through  
a dirty mirror  
 
We notice  
the fourth wall  
 
Geometric pages  
in the book  
we authored  
 
We should not  
strike the wall  
 
it’s the Rock  
one that bleeds  
 
the backbone  
of our Savior  
 
Speak  
to the Author
of your plot
 
for you  
may not see His  
face  
 
You may only  
...wear it
