for sera,

sometimes people hurt us,
betray us,
abandon us,
rip our heart out
and stomp that sucker flat.
but as julie daley said
on the 365 Altars Facebook page
the other day:
“intense pain is an altar.”
small comfort right now,
no doubt,
so that’s why we are . . .
circling in loving support
’cause it’s what we do.
