Every Day

Posted to Utterances

Our art is more intimate than our
Genitals or our underwear. We take
It personally when there is a pimple
Or a pee stain. And when our zipper is down
We don’t want to be told.

Vanity is a subtle temperature
We don’t want to be told
That our ears are too big
Or that we have an excess of hair
Here or there. We don’t want to
Be tolled.

If your work was shit
I would never tell you
But you are stronger than that
And can take the truth.

I love to watch the truth
Drain from the corner of your mouth
Don’t care if you swallow
But at least taste.

Every day you put new pages in my book
Every day you show me how
To be proud and mine for my passion
Every day
Every day
