Tenderness, sweetness, butternut squash
Mystery in giving not taking back
Flowing freely
Never ever looking back.

Dogma facilitates masking slack
Not telling the truth
Only giving back.

We are one
With what we are
Shovelling shit, taking pills
For now we are feeling
Feeling bizarre.

Will this help us
Find the tenderness we crave?
Or feel sweetness, butternut squash
So far, far far away.
