Haikus

In every moment
There’s an opportunity
To love while learning
_______________________________

I would like to catch
Mormons on a mission trip
In missionary
______________________________

Underneath it all
There are undiscovered rain-
Bows and arrows, too
_______________________________


Sometimes growing pains
Parallel necessary
Systemic breakdown

In other words, shit
Needs to be broken down in
Order to rebuild
_______________________________


When you are your work
It’s hard to not take work home
Give Grace to yourself
_______________________________

It is a privilege
To say ‘I just can’t’ today
TV off, still real
_______________________________

Don’t need your pity
I need you to understand
My reality
_______________________________


Exploited, tokened
“I have sooooo many (__blank__) friends”
white guilt processed, check!

Georgia peaches, sssuhhh
sweet tea, sweat thru your teeth, sing
Gospel, say hiii y’allll

Mow ya lawn at dawn
‘Cold beer on a Friday night’
Slap away the gnats
_________________________

Wonder if I stop
Using prounouns would people
Start speaking Grace more
_______________________________

Each month my body
Sheds away hard work, and mourns
Baby in due time
