I fear men will only ever view me as a pretty plaything, regardless of whether I actually have sex with said men.

maybe I'll start writing in this again. [Feb. 15th, 2011|04:37 am]
Of many reasons I love you here is one



the way you write me from the gate at the airport

so I can tell you everything will be all right



so you can tell me there is a bird

trapped in the terminal all the people

ignoring it because they do not know

what to do with it except to leave it alone

until it scares itself to death



it makes you terribly terribly sad



You wish you could take the bird outside

and set it free or (failing that)

call a bird-understander

to come help the bird



All you can do is notice the bird

and feel for the bird and write

to tell me how language feels

impossibly useless


but you are wrong


You are a bird-understander

better than I could ever be

who make so many noises

and call them song



These are your own words

your way of noticing

and saying plainly

of not turning away

from hurt



you have offered them

to me I am only

giving them back



if only I could show you

how very useless

they are not
