Fuel //by Jennifer Patino

I down
a cup
of jitterbugs
& shovel
handfuls
of knowledge up

I will it
to inspire me
& I give in
to ink tangents
and the fire

I make
miracles
out of messes
& destroy
that which
doesn’t serve

I believe
that purity
of divine love
is the truth
of what we
really deserve

I do this
to stay alive
& enjoy the lessons
I’m given;
It’s all I know
about how to survive

Specks and Loops

Once easily wiped away Or washed down the drain, Now bright and pulsing, Now entrenched and radiating Matter approaches and feels heat Sharp pain, then vaporization if touched.
