Un-Labeling

barcode 2.jpg

First we receive labels
Then we spend life trying to peel them off
Labels so thick they become the dress we sport
Labels blinding the scene
For fear of seeing and being seen
Not perfect and enough
Labels with a bloody barcode
To go through our own scanner vampirizing the passion
The heart seeking to be loved
In the silence of solitude
The eloquence of the Whisper creating a mantra
Creating a sound
Let go of the armor of control
