Let Me Be Amazing


Let me be amazing

– not for my own sake –

For goodness’ sake

That power’s potential’s


That the dust doesn’t have to be shaken off

In finding another receiver

Open wide 

Those narrow eyes

And see

Don’t let doubt’s benefit

Err on the side 

Of ignorance’s faulty view

Insist on the good

Pure, lovely

Let me be amazing

And I’ll let you be too

Just think of all the amazing

We’d be freed up to do!


Road Trip

Throwing off all this adulthood

Feels reckless

And who knew

Windows down

Radio up

A tank top on

And shoes off would allow

Summer to lick all this skin

Liberate all these senses

Back to

All wide open

Being here

Makes way

For remembering

And looking forward
