+ Gory

Tuesday, September 18

I thought I understood it,
that I could grasp it,
but I didn't, not really.

Only the smudgeness of it;
the pink-slippered, all-containered, semi-precious eagerness of it.
I didn't realize it would sometimes be more than whole,
that the wholeness was a rather luxurious idea.

Because it's the halves that halve you in half.
I didn't know, don't know,
about the in-between bits;
the gory bits of you, and the gory bits of me.
