npm: 16

A lot of emotions today. I have a show tonight which I'm looking forward to, despite this heavy heart from the tragedy in Boston yesterday. My heart is also feeling weighty due to the documentary Bully. I have tried to watch it multiple times now, and each time I have to stop it after a few minutes. There's no telling how long it's going to take me to watch the entire thing. My heart breaks for the young in the thick of it. My heart also remembers witnessing it myself as a kid...as well as being on the receiving end of senseless ridicule. I've heard great things about the documentary, and the subject matter is important to me...but I really wish I could shelf my emotions just for a bit while viewing. At least so I can get through it.

Anyway, today's haiku is sort of about all that heaviness.



unfurling the fist
i find a light, shivering--
lifeline on fire.
