“You Belong” by Tina Pocha

You Belong
“Wax becomes fire” by Mia Avramut, wax on masonite board, 6 x 6 in.

She gave me a gift
her disclosure
her addiction
She laid it out
as if to say
here
warm your feet on this
And I do
each time I feel
the world rise up
to swallow me
I remember
I am not alone
on that cold tile floor
