dear anti-feminists: please eat ur weight in bees
Elope with me in private and we’ll set something ablaze,
a trail for the devil to erase
…Close your mouth against food
Taste your lover’s mouth in yours
You moan, “She left me”. “He left me.”
Twenty more will come.
Be empty of worrying.
Think of who created thought!
Why do you stay in prison
when the door is wide open?
Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking
Live in silence.
Flow down and down in always
widening rings of being.
