self-image stands in the wayhey, stalk me
there are so many conflicting philosophies
and i'm writing.
keep watching for when i explode
i remember san antonio,
where all the art was too expensive
and a white-bearded man watched me and breathed to his loud wife
as i shook out my hair,
and that's how i know
(she echoed his soft intonations in a bird caw as she glanced over pink and red cowgirl boots)
he loves me, plucking nostalgia and regret from my sunstreaks
the radio tells me
there is only now,
only now, tonight, tonight,
but how can i believe that
when men of sixty-five
use musty longing from forty years ago
to compliment me?
mostly i just felt humbled in a proud texas way.
god, i loved san antonio
god, i love pretending i'm beautiful
pretty words and little lies
so lonely but look at me tonight
vanity stands in the way of all that calls itself art
and falls short.
Keep in Touch!
