Rock Bay Memorial Cruising Club, Waiheke Island


put on some lip gloss and
go to that dinner;
don’t hesitate –
breeze right past
and into

in between the canapés and
the main course, after
refilling the glasses,
take a moment and really listen
to what they’re saying
in between all the words

ignore the wax that’s dripping
on the tablecloth,
forget that we have different lives,
different stories,
different versions of the truth

conjure the fire,
the circle,
the community,
the magic;
lock eyes
and allow them to see
what you’re saying too
