bitch-slap happy

know this, Love

let perception wash over you

be baptized or bitch-slapped in blessed belief

drown in it for the good of all

whatever works

then squeegee your own self



embrace this enlightenment as a gift

blazed upon your blindness like a billion watt bulb

searing simple certainty into your brain, guts and skin

a tattoo of truth

so that you remember

and continue to breathe

lest you drown in your drama
