    Thanks for linking up to the Trifextra challenge. This is a beautiful response; you’ve somehow managed to pack so much in such a tiny space. I love the word play, love the symbolism. I’ve felt this way, and I believe I’ve made others feel this way. You managed to pin this awkward feeling down in such gorgeous words.
