the simple practitioner is happy believing things
the way others may try on shoes

she is an experimenter like Ralph Waldo Emerson
she has done things with garam masala that you
wouldn’t believe

she exists online as several chimeric beasts

she moonlights in at least three music scenes
and her filed down eardrums bear evidence

there is little that dissuades her
she is like a child who drops her
popsicle on the ground and then eats it

she is difficult to argue with
because she doesn’t argue

she dances like a drunk marionette
moth circling
a fish out of water

until she is unapologetically sweaty
