I will write one day about a special crush I have. For now I will just say that it has released a wave of creativity and got my writing poetry again. Here is my latest offering.
For Rebecca – as always
It’s not that I envy you, I really don’t.
There was just that time I missed the
McQueen exhibition and you went, and
I watched, only half admiring, as you
Posted pictures of your inspirations.
I may even have muttered “bitch”.
There are times I need this, so please,
Flaunt the things you have that I can only
Dream of, oppress me with your beauty,
Cut into my pride as if slashing my dresses with knives.
Take me to the shores of hating you,
Then pull back.
Make me savage.
Make me beautiful.
