This moment

This moment..
A clear cold night the sky has truth & an unassuming moon
The east bay is a delicate necklace of lights draped over dark water

From up here I see a city I love, a city I’ve had illusions about,
I try to see his house in the landscape of small colored squares but
This song makes me feel inflated, I feel dark & light I feel magic & winter
I feel forest & fire and the icy chill of the blue night air gone fragile on my cheek,
And all the while,
We were steady going under…

I want to be your muse
Let me be the goddess you use-
Shake what you know 
I can change how you see and react to the light that refracts off and falls across bare collar bones-
   Out of Darkness I will rise (again) &inspire, like the promise of my name held on your caught breath-desire. 

It is not your gaze which illuminates me but your gaze that experiences my illumination.  

 I am a bed of silk & velvet roses,
 the color of a sunset on fire-
 dripping  in gold 
Thorns that bleed deep purple
I Smell of ancient wisdom curling softly and disappearing like smoke 

I want to sing you notes that make you remember autumn. 
When I Hum, you will be coated- close your eyes and drift to the flow of thick warm honey taking you away. 
Lost- in my eyes 
 until I blink & my lashes are weighted by droplets, not of Onyx but of Gold-they escape, splashing to the ground at my feet. 

Epiphany # 63

Most of my epiphanies, and breakdowns happen in the same locations; the bathroom, and the kitchen.

I tried to put a spell on him but his spirit is illiterate;And if my incantations can't work, break them down to single words that make no sense; And if individual letters have no meaning, then the space between A and Z could be a life time; And if the life between A and Z has no space -we can not breathe; And a life will not work- a spell cannot work without a gentle breath that passes through soft pink parted lips.
