scorpio moon 18° 53'













i am a charismatic trick-pony rider
with an assignment to stand in the grass
barefoot
no glitter socks or rodeo boots
i am terrified - grass is unpredictable & liquid green
( i like socks,
they remind me of the softness of things
and the vertical )
the assignment was to stand in the grass
to drop the reins . .
close my eyes
and
throw arms open
allow the pony to gallop around the sun
. . .
can i handle the light
as it penetrates the veil
can i accept the burn ?
bring it in
and
if i do  . .
will
I
ever
want
to
leave
it  . .
the assignment was to stand in the grass
barefoot
stunning coolness
release
&
burn
