Day 26

Before the sun rises My dear one My darling Before the sun welcomes the blue back to the sky Before the the dove coos From it’s nest in the rafters Before you open your eyes Limned with laughter My prize Before the dew gathers While the wind travels north Before the sea wakes the gulls […]

Day 25

The world keeps turning. 3There’s a fire going in the living room (in the fireplace), and we don’t have any working alarms in this house. There’s a magnetic strip above the stove that holds all our butcher knives, and I can’t help but think it gives the impression of being too…convenient. Details, details. They’ll get […]

It’s like putting too many walnuts in your chocolate chip cookie. It’s like that horrible mound of crisco frosting Cosco smothers their cupcakes with. It’s like when […]
