the vivid tulips


"...nobody watched me before, now i am watched.
the tulips turn to me, and the window behind me
where once a day the light slowly widens and slowly thins
and i see myself, flat, ridiculous, a cut-paper shadow
between the eye of the sun and the eyes of the tulips,
and i have no face, i have wanted to efface myself.
the vivid tulips eat my oxygen..."

what are you hiding?


"why are we so full of restraint?
why do we not give in all directions?
is it fear of losing ourselves?
until we lose ourselves there is no hope
of finding ourselves."
