Day 288
12:53 am

tears

thank you for your tears

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

water

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

rain

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

tkk
(in memory of J. Delloro)
