StrawberriesIt rained yesterday.
It rained and it washed all the mud down our street.
I went in the garden, my shoes got all wet.
Darn summer showers that smell of soaked earth.
I went in the garden, I set down my fruit basket,
And started to dig.
Until I found strawberries, crushed by the foul phlegm of sand grains and
Dead leaves.
My hands still felt cold when I washed them with hot, steamy water
From under the tap. I closed it, and ran
Ran down the porous cement stairs that stung my bare feet,
To the beat of a popular tune our neighbor Jerry played,
To my friend's house.
My friend used to stick strawberries to the tips of her fingers and
Eat them off, licking her lips with vigor.
I knocked on the door twice and waited, strawberry basket in hand.
My hand wouldn't reach the doorbell those years,
Even standing on tiptoes.
When minutes passed and I heard nothing but the roar of an airplane's rotor,
I knew just where she would be.
Pushing my head between iron bars
two feelingsperhaps two of the
   saddest feelings to
   experience in life
are being afraid to
   love someone
   without reservation
and being afraid to
   receive love
   from that person...
This Is The Bodythis is the body that is rarely seen
because i drape it in loose swathes of fabric
not because i hate it or because i’m ashamed of it
but because i despise other people’s reactions to it
and i don’t like the person i become
in response to their assumptions of an overtly feminine sexuality
that is not an accurate reflection of who i am
i do not like being angry
but at least i am no longer angry with myself
i apologise to my breasts and my waist and my hips
for everything the world has decided they represent
and for my uncomfortable rejection of what they simply are
what they have no choice in being
now that i am less in control of their dimensions
you can stare at the colour of my hair
and the ink beneath my skin
and the metal studs and rings in my face
and you can stare at the sticks i use to walk
and i can take it because it is not so different
from when you stared at the weights i used to lift
and the empty spaces on my plate
in the summer when the city feels like a

madam--guillotine :iconmadam--guillotine: : Amazing and powerful writings



Always Been At HomeCan you tell me
where I've left my heart?
I must have set it down
but I don't know where to start.
Did I leave it
in the woods?
Trying, in nature,
to be understood?
Or maybe, perhaps,
in a cave?
Or sur-le-mer-
beneath the waves?
They say, that all roads
lead to Rome,
but I know where my heart is.
It's always been at home.
On TreesTall, strong, and forever.
Scraping at the sky.
We've so much to thank them for
but we just pass them by.
They give us air to breathe
and shade to sit beneath.
They don't mind we pick their fruit
or form their arms to wreaths.
Our thoughts should be for them
but we just cut them down
while they stand
Our love should be unbound
DoubtTo doubt yourself
To doubt man-kind
To doubt the sky
and doubt what you find there.
Because there's nothing to courtship
there is nothing to love
And the answers are not
in the stars above.
If you trust nothing
If you trust no one
you will be alone
when day is done
