...new poem...

…new poem…

the bar bottles on the rack

Christmas lights lit from the back

Sparkle; (reflected) energy bounces

Back, out

A million details could draw my

Eye in another direction, a hundred

Sounds could draw & distract me

… but for you

Vee-necked tight blk teed

Double-tongues she’d

Possess me complete

Totally charming, in all yr

Actions, in all yr grace, in all

Yr rhythms … am I dreaming

You, different? What hungers, what appetites you inspire in my thinking, in my shoes. There is a beautiful line, (barrier? No-man’s land, belt, heaven field) that flashes briefly, fleetingly between the bottom of yr blk tee & the top of yr jeans. Yr skin a dream of strength & softness.

How is the dream connected to the reality? W/out damage done to other states? How to dream you & know you? The balance of the gods. Who’s yr favourite god? … and what’s yr name tonight?

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? … There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. … And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
