Day 288
12:53 am


thank you for your tears

like art
can be your truest truth
your strongest vulnerable state
your greatest gift to those who love you

it is release
it is
a genuine pause

it is meditation
it the uncarved block
it is being in the moment
it is breath


i like to pee
i like showers
i like sprinklers
i like watering my yard with a hose
i like stirring boiling pasta
i like washing rice
i like fluidity
i like to sweat
i like sweat lodges
i like oceans
i like scorpios
i like hot pot
i like swimming pools

and tears?
tears are good
i like tears
i like crying


circle of mourners
they will soon rain on your grave
will you be watching?

(in memory of J. Delloro)
