by me with text from angels in america by tony kushner.
Hurting is cancelled,
as a verb or way of being.
that tithing is no longer required
that no one asked u to cover ur naked body in broken glass to stop breathing to see how many shards u can let stick.
hunger is welcome-
you don’t have to disappear to b seen-
u dont need to find new ways to b small-
to want less-
covering truth in different lqqks making it palatable for folks who never loved u.
that ur free
and ur energy is not
(situations and quote unquote opportunities and projects where they mine diamonds from ur teeth saying they discovered ur riches)
your body being used as a gateway as proof to loving browness and queerness and
All of this is cancelled.
The theme is i love you (me)
The theme is i trust you (me)
The theme is i won’t leave u ever (me)
That i would marry me today
No compromise needed
I am perfect and by perfect i mean human
And if I need to hide in an igloo for a bit to re-set i’ll be here when i get out.
Tea if i want it.
The theme is myself is all i have to start from
The theme is that im good
The theme is i am on my own team
The theme is u/ the collective u/ has not met my healing with healing
The theme is I dont fucking care what ur working on
The theme is show me
The theme is boundaries
wholeness and healthiness
Of long baths and u washing my hair
Getting my scalp real good with ur nails
The theme is fireplaces and hot tubs
Of raising glasses to myself
Of chalices to myself
Of my altar being abundant
My mouth being open
Of honey being poured in,
the baptizsm and resurrection
Of reaching the promised land
40 acres and a mule
Of needs met and exceeded
Of my own terms
The theme is something surprising
something very surprising
The whole world is changing overnight
Prepare the way
The theme is called when u pray what do u pray for
The theme is change.
