hey you

Something gnaws at me

a guitar pick on the same string

just plucking, plucking

a one track mind

get away from here

Sounds like a pretty good idea, actually

they say water on rock wears the rock away

but even water needs a break

I feel myself fading

amidst All This jaded-heaviness

verbal-vomit-readiness

hiding-behind-the-internet

Cowards and Fakes

it’s getting hard to take

hey

you

wanna run away with me?

let’s get lost in the wilderness

just for a little bit

a brief escape

out where guitar picks play at millions of strings

where there’s no one-track anything

and cool streams shock our bare feet

we can sit side by side

I’ll read you my poems and you’ll sing me your songs

And when it gets cold at night

Maybe you’ll slide your fingers in between mine

And I won’t mind

No

I won’t mind

I am outside

I am naked

I reach my hands into the black, rich soil

Fingers sliding down into Her

Bringing mother earth up to me

Smearing her dark Purity across my arms

Down my legs and torso, face covered

Warrior-woman–princess-goddess-girl

There is a low sun and a light breeze

I stand on land that is me

Arms open, palms welcome Sky

Fingers stretched out,

Receiving

Face tilted back,

Drinking in the golden elixir of The Great Spirit

Who moves me to run

Wild and Free

In the home of my Ancestors

One
