Out past the carbohydrates of my history. They yell, but my muffs are strong.

Someone gifted me a secret treasure map. I don’t remember who. (I do.) When I step into whatever ever there is, sun shines through spaces in the clouds, a breeze laughs its way down the street, through and beyond me. The magic leaps up. It’s personal.
