the beautiful underbelly

You’ll get mixed up, of course,
as you already know.
You’ll get mixed up
with many strange birds as you go.
So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact
and remember that Life’s
a Great Balancing Act.

Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.
And never mix up your right foot with your left.

and will you succeed?
yes! you will, indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)

Kid, you’ll move mountains!

- Dr. Seuss

Easter 2012-23

as I lie in our bed
with this naked time bomb
beneath my chin
i think of the hours until God will say when
and my chest will cave in
my throat will become dry
my feet against your soil will cry
and this city of joy
will become a city of goodbye
the city of our story
will become the city where our story dies

you are milk
you are honey
you are the land beneath my feet
the pulse against my breast
the arabic shadow
in which i have found my rest
i am a long time traveller
