The Final Cut

It’s always one step closer and two back with him

I am old now and don’t care
I don’t care about systems
Or figuring out what’s the best approach

I’m on my way to beauty and the beast

Is it me that creates this monster of fear from those
I find at least interesting?

I’ve a young man who fancies me between
Woman and mum

I’ve a date with my head and heart
Now that’s a start,

I do enjoy luminous

self love


Maybe when all these prehistoric unloving thoughts I continue
Whipping into the shape of

lina de milo



becomes my morning coffee

There he will be
Arms open and shaking his head saying
“Where you been darling?”


I’ll say,
“getting rid of musty leather satchels
and outdated designer luggage, busted down to
this airline regulated plastic bag,
ready to be examined”
or maybe I’ll just say,
“I’ve come to see if I can do this thing
This lifetime”
(i am a bit grouchy at this point)

And he’ll say
“You found me
So you already can.
I’m the one you been creating all your life”

(I almost believe him as his smile begins to beat the tune ‘you do something to me’ inside my own)

And then we kiss,
Because if he can’t kiss
He just lied, and I’ll know it.
