Jai Pail- All Night
My summer sounded like this. Jai Paul is definitely slumbered upon. Cheeks!
I’ve learned that I do not have to make myself digestible.
I do not have to work so hard at making my ideologies, behaviors, issues, my entire self compact enough for anyone’s convenience.
I won’t serve you a spoonful of sugar so the idea of me will go down easy like…
my wedding vows:
that’s about shit.
Understand, I’ll slip quietly
away from the noisy crowd
when I see the pale stars rising, blooming, over the oaks.
I’ll pursue solitary pathways
through the pale twilit meadows,
with only this one dream:
You come too.
You’ve survived every single day,
for as long as you’ve been alive.
You could spit fire if you wanted.
When you made me into another, I left you with me.
