Under construction

What is art 
if not
navigating conversations
Observing patterns
of thought and behavior
Responding in ways
that can be received
by the person sitting in front of me.

This is the craft
you’ll find it
ad I listen
In the space that’s held
for a person
to freely express all that’s in them.

The light and the dark
the in between.

My craft is understanding
trauma and its presentations.

My art is understanding my own.
