love song for ugly
how many times have you been informed
of this one true thing
did it happen when they shaved your head and the skin betrayed it’s blue through for the very first time
what demographic produces the pronouncement
and the clutching response
hot as ice
how often are you reminded
of this one real fact
did it invade you like springtime when you tasted her salt-custard scent on your
beloved one’s lips
what situation enforces the notion
and the bile that jumps
sing me the moment. the season. the weather.
drop loose your maw and release the dangerous music.
wriggle us out of that tight dark bliss
into the dog-light of that declaration
show me the waste of your faith in belonging.
is your heart still practicing for the great recital? how long will you wait
for redemption and beauty
the world to end
let me bear witness
and love you because
and not in spite of
I am fascinated by the ways in which we do and don't embody our selves. I do my own kind of research, and coach people to live their truest lives. I practice healing and communication arts, and I write about all these things. I am a nomad, these days living and travelling on my boat in the U.K.
