Poetry Month, Day 26: Interstices

Interstices

How many times have I filled in the blanks
Supplied the responses
Created the conversations
That I needed to have with people
When I lacked the courage
Or will
Or opportunity
To have that conversation properly?
And how many decisions have I made,
Based on impressions formed
In the vacuum
Of my own fears?
How much of my life’s “solid” framework
Is built on shifting suppositions and guesses?
