Anis Mojgani: Hon or We have both traveled from the other side of some hill, one side of which we may wish we could forget

“Love me stupid.
Love me terrible.
And when I am no
mountain but rather
a monsoon of imperfect
thunder love me. When
I am blue in my face
from swallowing myself
yet wearing my best heart
even if my best heart
is a century of hunger
an angry mule breathing
hard or perhaps even
hopeful. A small sun.
Little & bright.”

—Anis Mojgani.
