The Look

John, one of my favorites of his, says something here so strongly, so simply.

A Prayer Like Gravity

Do you look 
		beautiful, 

Do you look 
		beautifully,
                    or

Do you look 
		beauty 
			  fully
in the face
		and tell 
			  it to 
		fuck 
                         right 
                                  off?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My beautiful wife hates
to have her picture taken.

What have you done
to my love?

My little girl wants to 
be a ballerina, a fairy.

What will you do
to love?

So many girls
becoming 
so many women.

What do you do
to love?

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
