I have not been in love.
No one has taken
a box cutter to my heart
and stomped the blood into the carpet -
at least not the same person
who stitched me together
in the morning.

But I have loved
pixels and magazine clippings
and the satellites of kittens' ears.

I have loved tinkling bells.
The human voice
can make me float.
(drowned or free?)

I have loved
a snowglobe world
in which people are people
and there are no words
in any languages
next to the bar code.

The more I learn,
the more my mind opens -
like the rose trembling outward,
confused in the cold -
the more I worry
that I will never rid myself
of bias.

Even (especially) of
the labels that don't
think they exist.

The more I fall in love
with objects and ideas
and kittens,
the more I realize that
doing the same to a human being -
womanmanblackwhiteinbetween -
would be just like
watching the snow
