mmm



tender words
Tender words we spoke
to one another
are sealed
in the secret vaults of heaven.
One day like rain,
they will fall to earth
and grow green
all over the world.

1AM

and if the mystery is you
i’ll gladly take you on

a current running
between us
so tangible

i’m electricity
but transformer is blown

ground me
in your arms

licking flames away
burning twisting turning
sparks metal ash

i am wanting
awash in a sonic boom
of how it could be
and what i want
electrified
humming

the mystery of us
the mystery of we.

“The only reason we don’t open our hearts and minds to other people is that they trigger confusion in us that we don’t feel brave enough or sane enough to deal with. To the degree that we look clearly and compassionately at ourselves, we feel confident and fearless about looking into someone else’s eyes.”

pema chodron

this quote stuck out to me just now.
i find it difficult to show myself compassion right now. i think i’m just screwing everything up. life is in flux and i must wait on some things to change.
but maybe i am that change. maybe i need to love myself more in order to open my heart to other people.

how to find peace in this struggle? stop struggling. let the peace come.

“Read books. Care about things. Get excited. Try not to be too down on yourself. Enjoy the ever-present game of knowing.”

“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget.”

Arundhati Roy, “The Cost of Living”

You can watch Arundhati speak about her latest book, “Capitalism: A Ghost Story” at the New School in NYC here.

satie is spinning
on the record player we found 
in a second hand store

(i am sound
i am movement
fluid grace

but i am sad
blue as the bluest eye)

you, propped up on the sofa
nestled in a blanket with book in hand

i do the times crossword
never in pencil
always in pen

morning light warms the front room
we stir spoons in mugs
we stir ourselves slowly into the day

(i am drunk on this love
i am happy
i am hazy

but i remain sad
blue as that dress hung in the closet)

what will satisfy and still my ache?
my ache - 3 gymnopedies
satie, how did you know?
