A newly-arrived Los Angeles transplant takes part in a no-refunds-provided spiritual journey.

Quickly disposing of our corporate Starbucks coffee cups in fear of being judged by hemp-loving, incense-burning, damn-the-Man hippies, we walked into the Manhattan Beach Marriott. The room was markedly less Marriott than anticipated: an ambiance that consisted of a 30-chair circle and a maraca rattling, rain stick thrusting, and indigenous Amazonian drum pounding ditty awaited us…

Such words don’t fall on deaf ears,
they’re just not speaking your language.

I may not deserve to face you
where you are set,

(for who am I
to steal away the twinkle
from beneath the grey
shadow of your crown,
cast over your gaze)

but am I wrong to want you
to see what it looks like to be
wanted by eyes that know
what you are?

Too free to be kept,
too much a blessing
to be mine.
Colored forever
in my memory
like a miracle.

—  Unforgettable.
Don’t shy me away
like a kiss kept
behind curious lips,
complete the distance
between our air, show me
what tunnel hurricanes taste like
in the winter, navy in the fire
of a match in the cold
struck by our touch, underground,
held together in a hug,
a furnace, faint
in the flicker of a shiver
when we part, warm
like a home for two.

Ft. @coffeeshop_hero because nobody out here does like he does it. He takes his time and every time he puts out raw gold.

If you can do something,
Do it because you can.

Don’t ask yourself why
you deserve what you have,
take a chance and take what you can.
If it’s yours it’ll stay, if it’s not,
then it simply won’t be yours to claim.

But for the love of everything you are,
and everything that went into you,
don’t give up before you start.
Please, give yourself a chance.

Love yourself enough to know
you’re allowed to do what you can.

—  Faith
