today i listened to joanna newsom & slacklined for nearly an hour as the sun went down. i read ntozake shange’s spell #7 at a café & drank coffee - it was my first leisure read in forever. so many good things. tomorrow i’m gonna slackline in the morning & then play volleyball & go in a hottub. all of this feels so good.
most things hurt today but some things were beautiful like sunlight & balance. i can turn around on the slackline now & i stepped on a bee & was stung for the first time.
i wish it would rain
it’s hard to love a boy (maybe you shouldn’t)
who is ungrounded
who doesn’t know a thing about balance
who puts his head on yr shoulder
when yr crying about the murders of black boys
cuz he doesn’t know what to do i guess
but it’s you who should be putting yr head on a shoulder
