beautiful is the grotesque

though I may change
I’m not giving up anything
with absolute certainty
those spots I’ve long been sporting
aren’t about to disappear anytime soon

sylvia wrote about limitations
about her beautiful grotesqueness
and though I stumbled upon her words
by sheer coincidence
I was sure they were my very own
long before I was ever born

all my life I’ve been chasing stars
and trailing the moon
imitating them to a fault
ever changing but always the same

april two thousand eighteen
