There are moments when rules
are meant to be broken; when

be torn down. The slats look
solid, but no one drove the nail
in tight. There are barricades
around the heart asking to be
breached. Sooner and later we
all run out of excuses for
staying small and safe.

Cool, unlying life will rush in,
and passion will make our bodies taut with power,
