past editions

are growing.

welcome ya'll to edition v of the brown pages. tree tops are changing (here in chicago) and i am reminding the bull (taurus) in me to relish in change. 

in between now and the last edition. i found myself among a spiral*. 

what are the things we tell ourselves in the quiet? where are the lies that shadow reality?

i am detangling myself from the ways in which american culture has trained me to live. chasing successes' mirage.

social media makes it easy to believe that life can be measured. 

i am grateful for reminders to slow down. that productivity is not the equation of happiness/success. 

we have the power to manifest exactly what we need.** 

LOL.

i got deep at hello. anyways. welcome.

the

'secret poetry.'

we all know

this poetry.

lining our arms.

rusting our teeth.

walking through our hair.

feeding

our wild stomach.

soothing

our

mouth tears.

folding itself into waists.

between legs.

always

climbing up our sadness

into 

our necks

to 

sleep
