Be Safe and Wild

But not so safe that you fear the wild or so wild that you become averse to the need to feel safe.

Carol White is sick.  Too much milk, too much fruit, chemicals in the air, fumes from large trucks.  Carol White is stressed.  And tired all of the time.  Does she know why?  Does anyone know why?  Self-estrangement calls for self-love and distance from the asphalt/plastic/toxic things that have come to surround us.

In another time, Cheryl is desiccated.  Too much mood, too much truth, memories spring up like musical numbers, bruises from a monster backpack.  Cheryl is stressed.  And frustrated all of the time.  She knows why.  For anyone would know why.  Self-destruction is borne out of self-delusion and calls for impermanence and distance from the ego/blame/toxic things that have come to surround us.
