Sunset in Cabo
devouring these words/as if I’m being/introduced to my self/for the first time/like/how you know/deep in the core of your being/your truth/but it has been silenced/and then/it's laid out/simple/plain/complex/the small bites/long drinks/deep sighs/fatty parts/lean and deliberate/it's all there/and you know it/it's what you have been waiting for/it's what you had all along/just too timid/to let it loose
I/am still/watching/ a brilliant sunset/with a view/from the edge/of the earth/I am/at the tip/the bottom of California/holding on/to the round parts/of me/loving/every arc/and curvature/savoring/the essence/of my truth/it's/so small/its/so expansive/its/so magical/stillness/speaks/in the smoothest measure/it is effortless/like the rise and setting of the sun/like the ebb and flow of the tide
offering my all/sacrificing/my everything/first in libation/next I pass around the chalis/then I pour a bit out into the mouths of the thirsty/until I am empty/the cup is dry/no moisture left/so/drop/by drop/by drop/she filleth her cup/in the stillness of mighty sunsets/on the edge of existence/with radical self care/and zero fucks
black queen/#ntozakeshange/patron saint of our liberated voices/I salute you/and all our nappy edges
