Humans Are Creatures That Ooze

Humans are creatures that ooze.

From the chin to the brow

and all the way down

humans are creatures,

creatures that ooze.

When they're feeling too much

they squish, squirt and spit,

flail, drip and cry,

laugh, ache, and die

from sadness and joy a...

The Jungle

Sometimes I'd look up to you for so long my neck would hurt.

You taught me how to listen while I was

Sloshing around in your footprints,

Sliding over your roots.

I learned from everything holding everything else up.

Tell me stories about your lovers

(some are...

You Yes You

With or without your lover

dance and remember the reason you're here.

What is your work? To Heal? Dance? Sing? Take things apart? Pull things together?

Today calls your bluff.

Boiling wonder down to one question:


To those cl...

Cosmic Peep Show

As a piece of cosmos here on land,

I like to think 

we wear these skins like Christmas sweaters, 

filling these threads with power,

adding color to our nebulas

so that when we're done 

and get back up to the stars, 

we're right on time...

The Affirmation of Black Phoebe

Black Phoebe, 

You answer my prayers.

You find me each time

when I give up on hope,

undermine a leap of faith,

forget my place in the design of things.

Your timing

forces me to believe 

you know that I know,

and it brings me to tears.

Maya said "M...

Growing into your own skin

only to grow right back out of it

may be the perk of all the adulting you think you're doing.

All the challenging unglamorous moments 

of crying on the train, 

worrying your loved ones,

disappointing those you hold most dear,

expensive mistakes...

Hang On to Your Hat: A Prayer for the Living in the Nowadays

There certainly is a lot to do,

amidst all of the hullabaloo.

There certainly is a lot to see

going on with you and me

and me

and you.

So breathe.

May our eyes stay open, 

May the magic call,

Saying thanks

for eve...

Oh sweet Everything

I feel wonky and weird 
Like all of my happiness could just disappear
from some lameness from strangers 
I can't hide from the world

So I sing it Badu style 
as an analog girl.

Doing my best is all I can do
I know I've had worst days 
I'll just see...

There comes a time when one must grow by questioning the notions that once made them feel safe. 

Perhaps everyone who is learning how to fall in love needs to understand a few things about the crane fly.

The Crane Fly

The crane fly doesn't su...

The Feels

I feel the breathing out and in

the beeps and buzzes under skin

I feel the inside outside in

the beeps and buzzes under skin.

Before We Know It

Before we know it

all of our things will fade and become other things.

It is How we love and live that lasts an eternity....

 ...My teacher taught me this. 
Approve me or disapprove me: I praise the Mountain Energy night and day. 
I take the path that ecstatic human beings have taken for centuries...
I have felt the swaying of the elephant's shoulders; 
and now you want me to climb on...
