Contributor Series 6: A Currency of Words
Ode to Nice
By Christine Tapson

I’m proud of you.

Charged, sentenced, executed
Only you.

Every breath you take is bound to be sweet
Crisp, clean, and happy.

We can move away from pain and fear
Towards pleasure and love.
The destination might seem the same.

Underrated, discriminated against, banned.
Exiled from our vocabularies and our prose
While encompassing such vast potential.

Fat, self-important words like pintadera and petasus
Samskara and thrombolysis
Hog the stage.

I like you. You’re fine. I’ll embrace you.
