wattage

this was a beauty mark. in fact I have three.
now a mole / raised

checkerboard faith
every other one
every other time
bulimic dreams
– never staying
so I must confess to conducting concerts of judgment
reconciling with fear
of not having enough wattage
to light an ill thatched roof
with hoards of perplexed naysayers
and modest supporters

but this notion, these thoughts
have been here since my beauty marks
and now raised
I resolve
I can only be an artist.
