Mamma’s gotta’ get her mojo back – 1Posted: January 6, 2012
what is mojo?
where can I find some?
would I know it if I saw it?
Or, might it be best to find mojo by smelling for it.
feeling around a little might not be so bad either
I am terrified of mojo
it’s chaotic – yet, there is…an order, of sorts. or…
a familiarity a remembering a smoking trail
and deep groundedness
and tears that welled up from a place supremely primal
and so I keep looking
hiding from myself
my suffering is born of my desire to find
I keep forgetting I’m already found…
but where is my mojo
The following painting made me weep upon seeing it, in person at the Met, in NY about 10 years ago. Only a couple of things since then, artistically, have stirred such emotion.
