(Click here to listen to me read this poem and share the background of how this poem came to be.)
the space between us
is a prayer,
not a rebuke.
not a criticism.
What does the space between you feel like?
What is your relationship with criticism? As a child? As a parent? As an adult?
What would it look like in practice if the space between us was a prayer? How would that change things? What would you do differently?
