Artist's description:

Based on a poem by my late friend, Kasmira Barrett

Slow Burn
By Kasmira Barrett

Our legs always
get us there faster
than our hearts
are ready.

If you could see her,
you’d understand,
you’d probably

I don’t want just to want.

There’s something to be
said for holding another’s
palm to your cheek,

for a life built by two.

I don’t want to sleep
by myself.

Partly because I like
listening to you dream,
but mostly because
the embers
still smolder on the couch

and I’m afraid to be alone,
and I’m in love with fighting.
