the universe in expansion

poem: trust

trust

trust self to say when
speak the word & know

awake the star soft night
make time
a slow sacred thing

ask an open question

like,

are we (there) yet?
(home)
(free)

smile, heart:

you & I
have a universe!

we were not broken.

dream featured @ChrisCrocker & some jerk of a man - liked the cuddle scene w/him - fully aware dreaming that he's gay: platonic but sweet. 6:22 AM Dec 5th, 2009 from textwit

dream likely provoked by this house, viewings of Crocker's videos a few a days ago & the desire to sleep w/a gay man who looks pretty.
6:26 AM Dec 5th, 2009 from textwit

btw it's totally not fair that this house has internet in the deepest basement of it while I can't get a signal at the house I work all Sat.
6:30 AM Dec 5th, 2009 from textwit

holy crap, i shouldn't twitter on a few hours sleep & not awake yet. at least i heard the alarm this time. (Nice evening last night).
6:36 AM Dec 5th, 2009 from textwit

happy to be home but feeling good about the weekend job. I'm learning a lot & my fingertips have calluses again, go me!
6:38 PM Dec 6th, 2009 from textwit
