protect the living

it's taken decades,no, lifetimes,for those with wombs to have the government sign off on their right to sovereignty.as i grew in this world, i couldn't understand the national, platformed obsession with abortion. a cyclical obstacle, a normalized debate, that distracted from ongoing harm to already birthed humans.why is there such an emphasis on protecting those...

untitled

who am i to decide which creation is better than the other?pain drives me to shun that which caused it,to preference that which might have avoided or alleviated it.and yet, the pain itself and all that follows is birthed from the same material of all that is universal.the arising and passing away of thisis from...

an unknown life

sometimes we think that it will be this future point in time,that deserves all of our undivided attention.and try as we might, to consider all of the possibilities of what might happen then,we mostly cannot dream up the fixings of that moment.anticipating the convergence of energy, of something that feels like it might karmically determine...

river of tears

maybe when the water runs out,we will weep so many tears that the rivers will fill again.maybe after the last tree falls,our hearts will break, we’ll come down to our knees, and kiss the earth we have denied.in death, we finally lay belly to belly with the mother who birthed us.but maybe, as climate changes,...

The four directions embed inside me like a song stuck in my head that I never want to stop.Feeling them pressing into me, holding me.A ancient sense of belonging once forgotten refound.And as golden wings graze open blue sky,Wind howling in response and celebration,Ecstasy vibrates, pulses through body and memory.A forever knitting happens through me...

the empress

Grief is the empress of all feeling.For it is she who draws us to depths never known before.She summons us to the warm veil we've lived behind for who knows how long,And secures us in this residing place without knowledge of the next.Grief promises to transform us,For a heart that has broken many times learns...
