Sensitize Yourself

Don’t sanitize
Sensitize
Don’t minimize
Proselytize
Deliver or defy
Don’t be shy
Don’t lie
On You
Rely

Sensualize
Sway don’t rock
Stay don’t flay
Soothed or shocked
Come what may

Direct deeply
Misstep Frequently
Disjoint Weakly
Court your foes

Build that stock
Then burn it
Hear it crackle over
the ravens’ cries
Settle on in
Stop on by
Smell their roses

Feel the indigo through their black
Taste the metal in her touch
See the sighs he denies
Before the daisies’
Digging

Wake this day
Beckoning your heart
this new way
Signs
your signals
Craft
your vigils
Mark
then magnify
so you can never again
Deny

  1. Taking both lines together I mean to emphasize the hardness and strength of woman juxtaposed to the weakness and sensitivity of man—yin/yang—seeing the white in the black and the black in the white sort of thing. Thanks for your visit and curiosity!
