Thank you for popping in to take a peak.
My wish is that you dawdle
In this space with me
Because joy loves company
And there is plenty to touch upon.
I’ve been hesitating to lift my skirt
And reveal what’s rattling around inside,
Because I thought I had to have a profound WHY.
Something that sounds smart
— my fashionably avoidant side didn't want to feel silly.
Reasons that would be unanimously considered humanitarian
so people might flock for a good cause
and my anxiously attached side wouldn't feel alone.
And, all the trying to contain the reason
into a well scripted proclamation of purpose
made the river soak into the Earth's seams until it was all cracked up
and my mouth and loins dried up.
and all forms of Creation couldn't care one lick
About catching the eyeballs under the high brows.
She has a need to be consumed by the art of living…
And laying to rest.
I apologized to her for even considering dismissing her primal needs,
And forcing a smart, concrete laundry list of reasons
so I could feel safe stepping over the edge.
And insisted I drop the polished
To get to the meat of the matter.
She quizzed me again.
“I love myself too much not to.”
