Imperfect
by Jo Marie Bankston

Chased by the

Torment

of who I should be,

Hunted by the 

Shame

of who I'd been,

I

Could

Not

Stop

Running - 

Even as the 

nuts and bolts

of future-building 

Scattered

Behind me.

On Another Plane

On Another Plane
by Jo Marie Bankston
From the 4am Series

We were

Unmasked,

Unfurled,

Unraveled,

Unleashed.

Until 

We were

One breath,

United.
