An Open Space

I saved an empty page

With a title,

Designed for what may come,

Maybe a letter to the divine.

I saved the memory of a smile

Just in case,

I needed some more inspiration

to get up.

There’s always a dream within

A dream, it keeps on going


I’m unpainting my pictures now,

Washing them in white.

Opening into that knot of flame

That sharpens my 3rd eye.

Yielding to the hot wax of emotion.

As it turns to liquid, dripping


This wick of creation is melting and undressing

me from the inside.

You can come to me now

And you can live in me forever.
