So you don’t have to get misled by my hair and skin and intimidating words that you don’t understand
So you can see that im only a matter of cells and blood and eternity
So that I don’t have to work so hard to love you. So you don’t have to work so hard to love me
Start at the top, draw a line down the middle of my forehead, down my nose and across my lips, down the chin, the neck, the breastbone. Keep drawing, down to my belly button and through my pubic bone.
Now go back to the top, add a slider and little pull tub.
Yes you can, there are no rules.
Start pulling. Keep going keep going down my face, past my neck, down the breastbone and belly and all the way down.
Now pull the sides apart.
Yes you can.
What do you see?
What do you see?
Blood, flesh, forests, galaxies, confusion, black holes?
Do you see that we are all the same?
Do you see that our identities are a joke?
Sometimes funny but sometimes… cruel.
I long for you and you long for me but we don’t know how to say I love you, because we look different.
Because your jeans are fancier than mine.
Because you are prettier than me, because im wiser than you.
What a joke.
Are my flesh my blood my bones any wiser than yours?
Is your longing for origins, for solace for equilibrium any prettier than mine?
We are all fragments of one godhead, one oversoul, one origin.
We are all just fractions of one cell, a division seven billion strong and counting. Fighting over who got here first and who should have more and who deserves love and whose truth is the truth….
But there is only one truth and It doesn’t exist.
We all got here together and together we remain until always, until forever until wow….
The river turns back and retracts its steps back to the before the before the before. And then there is nothing,
Welcome to nirvana,
There is no more you or I
There is no more us and we can’t live through it!
So start slow…. Unzip me. …
