a bundle of sticks tied together to form a many-pointed star.  taped to the center is a piece of paper that says simply, “FEAR”
finding a piece of paper with 11 functions of fear listed.  needing to determine which role my fear plays.

getting ready for a class reunion.  i’m annoyed that my ex is there and i tell him that he has to move out.  he’s not a part of this life. i’m sorting photographs to share with old friends. the guest speaker is there and he asks me if i like living in the middle of nowhere.  i tell him that i think there is incredible beauty in flat spaces that gets overlooked. i offer to show him around and we go into a flat expansive field of tall wild grass and hidden there i point out the cliffs and valleys.
