Marisa Papen

Marisa swims between
ocean turtles
and plastic grocery bags

with a gorilla mask,

she
hangs from a tree –
stands at a
distance
and waits to be arrested

she
sits outside Rome
and contemplates Eve,
then dives back with the fishermen…

…and sleeps
in the
deep

Marisa hugs the homeless
jumps in the public fountain
wishing
her

Trident Man

would transform
into Momoa

through her
body
she is her own
child

building sand
castles

then stands
adult –

using herself
as Lee Miller

speaking of war
to a
silent world
not re-cognizing
the march

of Nazism –

– she then becomes the next
evolution of
Bettie Page
by
desexualizing
humanity

Marisa
continues forward
and words take

form

her body
taking
shape

readers taking pages
to dog ear

all while she fetches
water

singing
Darleen Carr

‘My
own
home’

our
Mowgli eyes

dreaming of
Shanti.

FLY

you came to me
i came to you
we took the lonely
broke our boredom
found the fear
wrote our names
left it all behind

and he here we are
don’t know if i’m surfing or

flying – high

but i am high – bound to you
in everything we do
two pair in one
hiking through

(being more)

even separate
we pull back to one
leading lives – growing up

growing in
to more

just do your thing
while i do mine
the circle will have us home tonight
then we can fly

be high

surfing the ocean sky
climbing the hills
leaving the forest behind

hands let go – hearts intwined
they lead us back in time

to fly
to fly

surf the
sky…… catch the tide..
