i bequeath myself to the dirt

“I bequeath myself to the dirt to grow from the grass I love,
If you want me again,
look for me under your boot-soles”

i found you

my match, my lighter, the flame for the cigarette i haven’t smoked in over a year.

elephant bells + headwrap + flip flops + rabid dog + patchwork skirt + zinc face paint + somewhere in thailand = my dream womb

dreadlocks + fanny pack + dress over jeans + frayed old scarf + camel = the undead hippie heart

dearest hands behind the amazing, please hire me. 
your world is my world.
we speak the same tangent.

I was the mistress
of my fate..
I gave it all out…
If I’d really known you then,
you would have had to watch out…
