Be Good

"You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves."
-Mary Oliver, Wild Geese
This quote comes via Superhero. I'm not sure exactly why, (could it be my baptist upbringing?) but it hits a spot so exact that I've got a lump in my throat right now.

No one needs to be sorry, ESPECIALLY you gutter girl. I was totally joking and I got that you were joking too.
