NYC, 2015

I promised him the sunrise.

Dance with me as it comes
until that dying star makes his way up again
our toes dusted wet with sand
slow walking through moonlight-guided paths

Tell me your worst secrets
believe me it will only make you more human
give me your best
you are filled with blue & light
and I will run with you until the end

Until the sky turns orange
pink
bright and blue
until the sky turns black again.

A reminder for tonight

Be brave and be powerful
you have opportunities all around you
desperate for your attention
and all you have to tell yourself is
“nothing can stop me from taking these chances”

Be a warrior for the things you want
fight for love in all the ways you want it
fight for freedom so close in your capacity
fight to be the best version of yourself
fight for yourself
because you are so worth it.

Attrition

We were
classic and beautiful and light
bonded to each other like an atom
bombs igniting at the chance of our separation

Thelma and Louise
sister bandits
goddesses who walked on water
who felt freedom in their security within each other
drinking and watching and devouring life on a Saturday night

How have we become strangers?
