Truth in Advertising

by Andrea Cohen

If we’d moved her,
she’d still have ’em,

the ad for Acme
Moving says, with a photo

of Venus de Milo.
But who, intact,

would Venus be?
Some standard-issue

ingénue. Give me
a woman who’s lived

a little, who’s wrapped
her arms around the ages

and come up lacking: that’s
the stone that can move me.

About theheartspaceblog.com

I am a Doctor of Energetic Medicine and a psychotherapist. Although my training is from Harvard, the world has provided me with a far greater education in my 28 years as a practitioner. I am an artist, writer and teacher. I love the tarot, the blues, the mountains of Colorado and have two daughters who see the world through the lens of a camera. I am passionate about the Mayan Calendar, food, love and adventure. I rarely stay in one place for very long and see the planet as my home.
