Fond of Failure
by Erica Jasmin Dixon | April 25, 2020

failure is my favourite sound
it means I’m getting closer.

eliminating doors not meant for me
the slams — a resounding yes to my ears
one step nearer to breakthrough.

new doors will open brightly
greeting me with the warmth of home
as I reminisce upon my fondest sound.
