‘All of my desires abolished by the plenitude of their satisfaction’

— Roland Barthes


I do surrender,

as often as I can,

not often enough.

How else do we find

the words, the worlds

within our minds?


Happiness is an exercise

in letting pain go,

in remembering

windy nights,

unexpected kisses,

lovers of the light.


Leave me smashed

in the arms of rapture,

living life to

the point of tears:

stubbornness is useless

in overcoming fear.
