Audacity of Being pt. 5



when i was a child
     do you want to come with me
said 
     I want to take you with me 
And   that was as close   to saying 
     I love you

Audacity of Being pt. 9

sun-poem

 

If the Sun revolved around us instead
how merciful would we be

to see the sun so incomplete
sometimes

in phases becoming like the moon
has only made us into pliable rock

SKIN

skin-poem

and it matters that 
we don't just rip 
when we move 
in that love way

Audacity of Being pt. 3

keep pouring yourself into me…

I’m not particularly hungry right now
But I like to pickle and make marmalade
out of wounded material
I can salvage anything
make it work for the winter months
I’m a cleaning lady

this war they’re waging against us
I have the liver for it

lava poem

 

do not work this hard     not on my behalf
it’s not worth it
said, Lava
to the fields     there is more of you
where you came from

Penmanship pt. 10

I do not apologize
if I made you
look overdressed

Look harder
I am wearing so much

carrying caracoles
y colibrí
blessings from the jungle
