Mandy Tsung – unnamed

the i love you magic
working its way through me

not because i heard it
but because i said it

the i love you magic
when i’m all alone
embracing myself
as i want me to be

not because i heard it
but because i live it

the i love you magic
when i love the evil
the weird & rejected

not because i heard it
but because i want it

then i’m one
then i’m them all
then i’m lone
finally whole

Acorns

Gustave Courbet – The oak of Flagey

what’s an acorn
but a possible oak–

we too are acorns
waiting, struggling
becoming the tree–

not there yet
but we’ll be–

*

new year is here
start–
forget the acorn
be the tree–

why stay the same
if we can be
so much more–

A Dickinsonian birthday

Salvador Dalí – Glass of wine and boat

years and years
left behind
so one New
can begin–

and i, i dwell in possibilities–
and my boat has no port–

and my dreams are so big
that i float adrift–

and my life is a mess
but i couldn’t care less–

we’ll have wine
and nice talks–
love is all around
inside and out–


Yep, I’m the birthday girl today. Not every day you turn 27, peeps!
