Audacity of Being pt. 5

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

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

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

I bring no lessons I’m not a priest

Or teacher

Not a Spiritual person

I bring fire


I’m a cleaning lady
