FINALLY FOR THE BETTER

Originally published in The Vagina Zine

 

Let’s talk more about the choices we make for the better
and less about nights being sat
slunk over coffee mugs apologising to friends,
for sorrow.

Instead, let’s make fruit juice.
Put bright colors in tall glasses
and look into each other’s eyes.

Let’s travel in pockets;
always reach out, and up and past limits.
Let’s learn “limitless” inside and out.

From now on, let’s be akin
to sun-drenched yellow kitchens
and good hair days.

Let’s make each other feel
good and look good and be good.
