“There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self.”  Aldous Huxley

Petit Coin (small corner)

I wanted a corner just for myself,
a grammar of sanctuary
giving rise to a language of
resistance to the noise
that has become the world
building a rough nest
in the habitation
where my soul once played
out epiphanies of great joy,
just a small corner of repose
that I might re-member myself.
