I saw my soul become flesh      breaking open
the linseed oil breaking over the paper
running down      pouring
no one to catch it      my life breaking open
no one to contain it      my
pelvis thinning out into God

-- Jean Valentine

I was trying to do anything except what I "ought" to be doing so I was blog-surfing and picked your link pretty much at random from Simply Wait. I was confronted with this cool poem. There is unexpected beauty to be found every day. Thanks.
