What do you see
Just a memory of me
Stories written on cream colored paper

Folded in half
A crease as sharp as the knife
That gutted me
Spent flowers are pruned
Watch me grow
Into this skin
That I must live in



I love love, I love birds, I love shooting on film, I love coffee, I love going to the movie theater, I love popcorn, I love sleeping, I love decorating, I love gloomy days, I love the Dodgers, I love keeping plants alive, I love rice, I love laughing, I love dancing, I love when flowers bloom and then fall apart, I love long hugs, I love a firm handshake, I love Hawaiian pizza, I love my dog Lou, I love Lambrusco, I love reading, I love the ocean, I love the sun, I love Yoga-urt, I love my darling Sam, I love sushi, I love snail mail, I love being with my family, I love singing, I love collecting rocks, I love organizing, I love getting my back tickled, I love listening, I love gold jewelry, I love things that are engraved, I love journaling, I love getting dressed up, I love wearing linen, I love drinking water, I love babies and their little feet, I love typing,
