Stepping out of Animus

Stepping out of Animus
the particulars release me
floating flotilla failing to facilitate my fluctuations

You are right in a way that I cannot deny:

“We are always somewhere else at the same time”

this explains our unequivocal need for ‘more’… in every subject matter
for this other self is self
it is the holder of all my becoming
my very ability to move forward comes from her unrealized character.

cheap mascara
plump it up lips
nylons from 1974

dangling by the thread emotions look like ripe spiderwebs with morning ‘due’

care for me now dear friend
while I understudy myself
while I take over and sweat out the pain of the unnecessary roughness
catching the ball in your court

I’ve polled myself for president
I’m a woody woodpecker original

Mother said “Darling, it’s the eye that catches the winds of fate
look deeply and with much care and undoubtedly you will see only what you expect”

so I want to steer clear of the unexpected when I undress my silky to the bone Animus loin cloth
made of sheep bahhh bah baahing me to rest out a lifetime

“To return to the Wonder. To see without eyes”.

Lets do this my friend,
before the temptation to speak without lips that may ‘savor fair’ our lives into oblivion
or breath without a knowing which could sustain everything on the head of a pin

“The image we have of others – why not let it be a follow-through,
free of the acidic assumptions and fake tales we use to fill in the gaps.”

This is more the reason I want to flee from my own assumptions
of what I am or not, or for that matter, what anyone else is

for this is the first base of knowledge, it’s the home run’s honor
a pitch of truth:

“We do not know anybody! Think of how we would treat people
if we respected their mystery, and our own.”

The question is out there.
