I am beautiful,
an idea, a color
a presence I am emotion
I am a person a whisper in the dark
a bursting rupturing feeling outpouring
a shiver a smile
happiness
beauty is a busted spleen,
waiting in the dark with a baseball bat and
a cigarillo puffing slowly
waiting to jump up and whack you with
reality and all of these things and
people and places pretending to
matter.
beauty hurts, it hurts like hell,
it's a painful thing, a painful event,
you turn the corner and bam you got
a big wooden stick in your gut and the
stick doesn't care.
I am beauty, so are you.

I am tao
I am beauty
I am nothing.
beauty is nothing and
that's why it
hurts so well.
Today I feel electric grey
I hope tomorrow, neon black
