First, love 
absence. Lick 
darkness 
until you become 
darkness. 
Let the stars 
wear you 
as their sky. 
(Lucky, lucky.) 
Worship the dome
of your limits. 
Listen 
to your heart’s 
mundane rhythm. 
Marry it. 
Fuck the ticking 
until time 
is born.
Everything will turn
blacker 
and brighter. 
Dress in nothing
-ness and no 
beast will see 
you. 
The world 
is not lonely 
unless 
you ask 
to be seen. 
You are 
a wife 
if your husband 
is always underneath.
You are 
a mother when 
you create 
any damned thing.
