Yeah yeah yeah I know that "Lady Lazarus" is more about exposing yourself through poetry/art, dealing with a husband's infidelity, literal suicide attempts, and all the daddy issues that "Daddy" is about.
It has been in my head all week just the same. Because it's finally starting to feel like summer. And I have more down time than I have in years. I enjoy every small detail of my life.
I teach yoga for kids. I meditate every morning and before I fall asleep. I devour books for fun. I have neighbors who have yards like this:
I walk and I walk and I walk. On my days off my car keys do not touch the ignition at all.
I cook every meal I eat. Each one is a feast, a masterpiece.

I do dumb weird Dollar Tree crafts because WHY NOT, life is short and they remind me of friends who make me laugh.
I see friends, I go on late night misadventures.
|I do not think this store is open.|
I am your opus,
I am your valuable,
The pure gold baby
That melts to a shriek.
I turn and burn.
