What’s the matter?

We believe we are separate

from the Earth 

from each other

can’t see all the emptiness 

that connects us 



April PAD day 27: believe or don’t believe

Questions

I have so many questions 

so much hurt to understand

but the only one that matters

is how do you open your heart?


— 

April PAD day 24: question

Assent

How lucky am I 

to be born 

with such beauty 

that you cannot 

look away

keep your hands off

keep your cat calls

in your mouth

must thrust your desire 

into the world

into me 

to hold for you

without my consent 



April PAD day 13 prompt: lucky or unlucky

Thoughtless

There is no thinking with

your heart, it 

only knows how to feel 

to beat, to 

keep driving love/life forward

Love your neighbor

Love your neighbor

your good book says, but 

you believe your 


Middle Eastern messiah 

was miraculously white, feel affinity 

only toward those 


who look like 

you, not the ones he 

would have loved 


You pick and 

choose which teachings are relevant 

and none have 


anything to do with love 



April PAD day 20: love or anti-love
