Heart Chakra

Dreamed 2011/5/8 by Wayan

THAT DAY

I was named the executor of my mom's estate. It's turned out to be complex. I spent today learning about estate expenses, and trying to sort ours into the slots on the tax forms...

I do take breaks--even work on a song: Keep it Simple, Stupid. Should I transpose it so it's easier to sing? But playing is harder for me than singing, so maybe I should leave it--the original key was as easy on my fingers as I could make it.

In the evening, watch Megamind. Not wildly original, but funny. How's this for a movie review: "More fun than doing taxes."

THAT NIGHT

I massage the red-orange oil
into my smooth-shaven skin--
sleekly unreal, for I'm digital. In
Meatland, I'd never build up all

this muscle! Red is just initial
hue in a colorcode chakra tour.
They promised I'd be sexy. Smear
my rigid abs and bland crotch-dome

(no cock: for I'm a kid-friendly cart
oon goon) red. But that looks wrong,
this pelvic blush: red's for the heart!
So I midriff wash, and then I smush

red goo onto sternum and breast.
It isn't paint--translucent stain
that won't really take until rubbed in.
Puffy pecs, pneumatic chest--

so fake! Gotta wash my hands again
or I'll Macbeth the guilty walls. Next
the oil of orange, then yellow, green,
blue. Damn goo. Better pay off in sex.
