full as craving…

… along the creases of my softest skin.

tucked in the heart…

It is a dangerous thing to follow your hearttucked in the heart
because that is where you will find me,
tucked inside.



tip of the iceberg…

To live in this world you must be able to do three things
To love what you love
To hold it against your bones
As if your life depends on it
And when it is time to let it go
To let it go.

Mary Oliver

good bones…

Life is short, though I keep this from my children.
Life is short, and I’ve shortened mine
in a thousand delicious, ill-advised ways,
a thousand deliciously ill-advised ways
I’ll keep from my children. The world is at least
fifty percent terrible, and that’s a conservative
estimate, though I keep this from my children.
For every bird there is a stone thrown at a bird.
For every loved child, a child broken, bagged,
sunk in a lake. Life is short and the world
is at least half terrible, and for every kind
stranger, there is one who would break you,
though I keep this from my children. I am trying
to sell them the world. Any decent realtor,
walking you through a real shithole, chirps on
about good bones: This place could be beautiful,
right? You could make this place beautiful.

she has been here all along…

waiting patiently for you to turn away from all your busy comings and goings, to recognize her, greet her, and welcome her home.

happy new year…

happy new year 2016

Ring out the false, ring in the true…

kiss me stupid

first and foremost…

I would not have you descend into your own dream.
I would have you be a conscious citizen
of this terrible and beautiful world.

first and foremost

— Ta-Nehisi Coates —
