The Guru. The Tampon. The Secret.

In Poetry on October 27, 2011 at 3:05 am


“A poet is not in search of truth,
but of beauty.
Pouring your feelings
into whatever you are making
is not enough
for a seeker of truth”


Beauty is a modern form
choice protection.
Choice is odorless inside
the body
and develops an odor
only after it is exposed
to air.


Beauty is the ultimate choice.

Do you want it inside?
Do you like it?
