Magpie Tales 128: Relationships



relationships:
this bond



hanging on 
your every word,

          anxious, 
          timid, 
          with trepidation, 

my hand 
holds fast 
believing nothing's

          misspelled, 
          mispronounced, 
          misunderstood, 
          or mispoken.
