Rivulets of water

ricocheting off new growth

running dow

 stubbed leg.

“You’ll stop shaving one day honey!”

I hear gramma,

gravely, strong, not-so-distant voice

 

Peacefully

Paralyzed

 

Imperfection

missing the dead

 

Imperfection

is

living still.

 

Imperfection

is

owning your growth.

Perfection.
