We are all young once

snowflake poem

We all take a shit

after waking up

from a dip  in the

pillow drool pool ...

morning breath

of hatchling dragons


Every day I get older,

hoist a cross,

scatter delusions

of frozen time


Only a blind soul

unto their own sight,

has eyes in their heart,

sees the self completely,

and passes right through

these involuntary defenses


By Heart alone,

illusion becomes what it is


My closest companions

bypass pretention

to which we women obsessively attend

overcome their eyeballs

see the dirt for the flower


I know that look,

return to it,


for such sweet relief


Everyone else,


you've always left me

more alone
