poetry from another dimension

the-shopping-list

oil (coconut, sesame)
water (5 gallons)
avocados
sprouts

{call Dena}

almonds
dates

{call dentist}

apricots (turkish)
brazil nuts (raw, of course)

{do the laundry}
/● do?●/

brown rice

{do the dishes}
/● do? ●/

nori

{water the plants}
/● an act of love ●/

requirements fulfilled

{so what if they are not?}
{why wait until it’s done?}

[[[there is nothing else needed]]]
[[[no there is nothing else needed]]]

gaze at the blue sky

{stop everything}

or the dome of stars, or the full moon overhead

{inside reflected on the outside, blazes of light}

fall in love

{sukinoh, santosha}

trans. happiness contentment

fall in love

{not with something or someone}

fall in love

{that list is no longer necessary}

fall in love

[[with living]]

like a drop returning to the ocean
come home

/● maybe this never meant ●/
/● what they told us it did ●/
