Black X's - Poem by Katie Here

Empty hands marred with bold, black x’s
While feet tap to the ever steady beat
Over head the stars silently linger
Unseen but watching

The vibrations coursing through the body
Making the music
Making the listeners
Come fully alive

Tonight they will go home slightly mended
This night full of joy
Full of strangers
Has helped mend old wounds
At least for the moment

But with tomorrow
Comes new wounds
That will need to be mended
With that next set of
Bold black x’s
