WIPS

The Artful Dodger


There are no ingenues
only masterpieces
at different stages
of revealing themselves

Painting with the books
on their shelves
the friends that they choose
how they process the weather
the abuse
the pleasure

If they stay inside
when they have no umbrella
or dance in the rain
artful
even if only in
their interpretations of reality

Anyone else's interpretation
some days feels sure
like a blanket
others like a straightjacket
the claim that
who they are individually
is a unique form of insanity

unknown
uncontrolled
undefinable
and therefore
feared and misunderstood
but only until self actualization
self acceptance
full bloom
fully individuated Self
something perfect the Universe is doing
