Story Within a Story

What’s a story within a story
the stories we tell to make sense of another
story within story within story
interrupting each other as we each want to tell our story
because this story is relevant
this story is true
this story is crazy
who really is interested in all of these stories
these words words words
who thinks of them
makes sense of them
dwells on them
besides each teller
we each only care for our own stories
“I’ll tell you some of my story”
she says to the woman crying in the corridor
as though telling her story to the woman
would help?
Maybe it does.
Stories, their words, their pictures, their actions,
reaching reaching
building on each other
Isn’t that what relationships are
Sharing stories
reaching out with words
hoping beyond hope that
will connect to the story
we each are telling
