why only one day?

happiness lives where
gratitude for all that is
is expressed fully

why only one day?
searching for my abundance
I see it right here!

smells and memories
of savage past indulgence
tasty little lies

reconcile the past
with over indulgence now
I'm so full of it

missing the trends

fashion designers
generally aren't so shy
they hang it all out

one season is all
(or maybe just one day) and
then it moves along

no more schemes

no more schemes
just look at what is
and see it

what unfolds
in the space between

don't blink

sometimes I
must move so quickly
or miss it

gray branches
waved a pink shadow
on the ground

brush strokes fluttering
images flicker, dance, and
evaporate- poof!

open your eyes now
beauty is all around you
be careful, don't blink

control issues

there are muscles and

there are some other muscles
my brain's the biggest

exercise them all
find your freedom and power
control yourself girl

the meaning of pink

I was wearing pink
by happenstance last night and
still they gave me more

ribbons emblazoned on
suit coats, shoes & KitchenAids
profits show we care

racing for a cure
is the profit line pink too?
yes, I love my breasts

use a pink trash bin?
it is still full of garbage
marketing disease
would you like to help?
don't use without permission
pink is property

sibling rivalry

sibling rivalry
has always been a problem
in my family

jealous of the brush
the cat rubs against my leg
eyes the empty dish

fear of landmines

avoiding land mines
what is non-negotiable?
it's all up to me

do not draw the line
unless you're willing to play
this is scary stuff
