A blind theme of sensual deliverance

.

A blind theme

of sensual deliverance

 .

 .

Opaque but controversial

acts of spiritual courage

        visceral

        cantankerous

It is equally important

how something is given

as to how, or if, it is received

        discarded

        avoided

The summer dung is used up.

Flailing or foraging, we all get used up,

turn old and baffled by the complex amount

of disappointment – not just by one

by everyone.

 

Then it is murky

and mortality-unbelievable

that things will change into childhood’s ideal.

A choice emerges, to accept without

bitterness, just do the things

that make you happy – child’s play.

 

For you – that is all it should have to give.

For others?

A shrug to feign indifference

For others

should not be able to give or take inner satisfaction.

Cull the fables

 

Here it is, the butter slab

on the table

pepper spots on the floor

and marmalade

in doses.

“Her (Allison Grayhurst’s) poetry appears visceral, not for the faint of heart,
and moves forward with a dynamism, with a frenetic pulse. If you seek the truth,
the physical blood and bones, then, by all means, open the world into which
we were all born,” Anne Burke, poet, regional representative for Alberta 
on the League of Canadian Poets’ Council, and chair of the Feminist Caucus.

“What a treasure Allison Grayhurst is. Her gift? To unfold for us life at this intensity of feeling and revelation. Who knew truth and beauty could be so intertwined and so passionate?,” Taylor Jane Green BA, RIHR, CH, Registered Holistic Talk Therapist, and author of Swan Wheeler: A North American Mythology, Swan – A Planetary Mythology, and The Rise of Eros, 2014.
