If you want a recipe for
what makes me tick:
Blend tears with a quarter
angry, sift in full blown attitude,
and a strong shot of feminist.
Peel back a few layers of thick skin
until you reach the center where
love doesn’t make labels, compassion
keeps me centered, and you’ll find
a seeker whose mind isn’t so stonyit can’t be changed.
