"I wanted to crawl in between those black lines of print the way you crawl through a fence, and go to sleep under that beautiful big green fig tree."

All your life you’ve been practicing
the art of carrying the weight
of a burden that was never really yours
you shoulder your guilt the way
that Atlas shoulders the globe and
you tell yourself that people
tell beautiful stories
about martyrs

they tell you to stop living like
a thunderstorm

they tell you that
you can’t take the blame that
they won’t give you

they press their hands to your skin and say
that pain is not graceful
that you are graceful

they tell you that
practice makes perfect, darling
you are perfect, darling
and nobody builds cathedrals anymore

a step by step guide to sainthood (M.D.)

This is gorgeous.
