it takes courage
to marry the salt with the hungry
our trips around the world have left us dizzy with exhaustion
tired of “waiting for godot”
enough to teach anyone
that the world would still be round
even for people with legs as short as ours.
let no one make a feast of your bite
don’t ever apologize for having too much bark
thats how we weed
the humble pure from the painted-actors.
some would call us
queens of self sabotage
it is our discernment
that keeps our foundations stable.
thank you, for teaching me to never settle
for anything less.
i told you – my world would break you
