Wow, I’ve really been AWOL, M.I.A., GONE, for a whole year. I need to let that sink in for a while. Ok, honestly, I missed writing so much, but life got in the way. For a year? You ask. Yes, for a whole year. But here’s a life update for any one of you that…
Snow baptises the winter baby, the chalky-white of her gown; an inanimte duplicate of a colourless, unpigmented heart
“make a careful incision” with a blade blunt enough to burn but sharp enough to lacerate your razor-edged tongue
Tears imprinted on my heart A piece of art done with professional hands And while anon paints away I’m told to keep smiling “Don’t move” “I don’t want to make a mistake” Silly Doesn’t this artist know I’m already made of clay?
Blown away like leaves with comical faces sketched on them By words that made me cry Tears of joy I swam in for fun// such unknown happiness Made people say a little prayer for me Forever and ever
