NaPoWriMo - day #17

They ask, what's the craziest thing you’ve ever done? and wait for palatable answers. Hoping to hear stories that are common and pleasant and maybe a little bit dirty. I dig up stories that I know can be replanted. Not untrue, but not the truth. Each time I build a vision of myself. There is safety in choosing mirrors over words.

Here is the goddamn truth:
The craziest thing I’ve ever done
is refuse my own reflection.
Years I’d been given to pursue the light
spent making home after home in shade.
Each structure takes time. They are sturdy
but cold, and after each construction
I leave just as I’m told. What a crazy thing to do
when it is I who is the sun.
