God is in charge
loving and gentle
of Pele's destructive
Land Manufacturing, Inc.

A breath of fresh air
keeps me sane
which is why
I can't breathe

The stupid things that I do
me, the clever one
procrastinate, fear, not breathe
I am uncomfortable to avoid discomfort

You cannot rescue me
or give me gifts
I will hate you for them
and throw them away

And I will love you anyway
like the spring the summer
the summer the fall,
and nobody loves the winter

Becoming old
is better than the alternative
and the most surprising thing
that can happen to a man

Equal day for equal pay
Equal night for equal rest
and joy and pleasure
the brain is the biggest sex organ.

loving myself
is harder than it seems
but much better
than the alternative.
