I've had a rather busy week. Schoolwork, normal work, volunteer work... I've been very productive, it would seem. I'm just wrapping up this semester, enjoying my effortlessly easy and rewarding job working night shifts as a cashier and on Wednesdays have been devoting my time volunteering with a sexual health organization. There hasn't been a lot of time for creation, but I seem to have managed. 

This poem here is prompt #140 for One Single Impression, the theme was "dreams". 'tis only a little thing, but I felt like jumping onto the raft again. 

i cannot fathom 
returning to the other side
when here, 
i am an empress
wrapped in layers of cloth 
with all the fables of the world
my throne seated atop 
a mountain of 
sugar that 
laughs in sweetened tones
at the absurdity of it all
