I want this daring to slow down amidst chaos... to reach for one another to say, “Hello, I am here, I don’t have the answer, but I will stand with you.”
A man will be conscious and present to the same degree that you are actively radiating your love and allowing life force itself to roll through your being.
Open your mouth wide so the fem-fire inside you can climb your tongue and ride your breath straight into the rooms where attack-plans are made and signs painted with slurs are hand-crafted out of thick, religion-validated and institutionalized racism and politically sanctioned, xenophobic sludge.
I felt it deep within the indefinable essence that was my being. The one that had draped the white wolf’s skin and picked the stars and walked the paths to find other things. The one that now saw how love was the root of all things.
We go to our failed relationships and our broken marriages to feel the pain... Then we cry the never-released tears, we vent the repressed rage, we honor our deepest fears, and give voice to all our hidden shames, because therein lies every answer you will ever need.
