Goddessed into 2019

Reluctant bridge
crawls across from December into
January

failing to tip
me off

as the tips of my fingers reach     out    and   hold                 on

s t r e t c h e d

whole

wholly reluctant

full of holes

and

unretractable.

Not for the first time, I have the feeling of being holy –

goddessed into 2019.
