ConfessionTo Margo Solod's previous piece     Bodies in Motion, At RestTo Margo Solod's next piece


I believe in the sanctity of handmade quilts,
in unlocked doors, in anyone who's lived a hundred years
or more. I believe in eating what you kill,
and hanging up the bathmat. I believe in kissing away tears,
not in heaven, or hell, sorting laundry,
writing what they tell you to or high
heels on anyone but drag queens.
I believe we can read our own minds
if we choose, in the necessity
of streams and eating muffins from the bottom up. In gleaning,
and tent revivals as pure entertainment.
That calling someone civilized is not a compliment.
I believe in dreams of grandeur,
in the curve of a woman's hip as a form of prayer.
