You Are an Epitome of Beauty

I thought of a marvelous
Trick:
If you’re reading this
And having negative
Thoughts imagine
Now those thoughts
Exiting through
Your shoulder blades—­­
As soon as they hit the air
They’re seahorses
Behind your back they’re
Building an air school to
Hash it all out. Now
Picture the seahorses
Coming to show you
The results of
Their long studies
They say we are too pretty
To be sad
And the deep
Inside you though dark
Is full of
Electric coral—
We only got negative
Because we couldn’t
Be seen but now
We can see our beauty
Now we’re educated
Let us teach you!

Then they show you joy.

Happy Ghost Emoji

Tonight I am reborn
As Happy Ghost
You can contact me
Via Ouija, baby
I’m the Weegee
Of passion crimes committed
Solely in the mountains of
Mind
Where streams flow
Whose water
Marbles like flesh and where
Werewhos prey…
Rise into the tree crowns,
Star of day
Be the monster whose each step
Makes wood blooms
Forever verb.
