Watching the news on the massive explosion at a fertilizer plant just north of Waco, Texas. Houses leveled, at least two dead -- maybe more, maybe many more, toxic fumes in the air. It was probably not intentionally set, but after everything else this week, hard to not wonder.

Stay safe.
Like a spent gladiator
crawling in the colosseum dust
who can count on his remaining limbs
all the people he can trust.
Like the one who stands behind him
cheering him on
Estatic when he stands defiant,
wild with abandon when he's gone

just stay alive.
do whatever you need to.
you are worth it.
