Act One (it’s not very fun)
Scorpion stinger straight to my third eye
Eight weeks of exploring all of my ugliest sides
Hope, magic, faith: exit slowly stage right
Act two (insomnia, you fool!)
Hyperactive Brain & Sleepless nights: enter stage right
Feeling frazzled, spent, generally bereft
Mars Direct: enter swiftly stage left!
Act 3 (it somehow aligns magically)
Leah wakes up, as if out of a murky dream
Quiet for days, she sets free every stitch from the tattered seam
Planets, Sun, Moon, Family, Friends (near and far), Soulmates, Stars, and meteorites that appear to fall:
Enter both sides of the stage for a cosmic curtain call!
