cotton cosmos carrying a tv to the roof in a downpour. binged under eyes and lady lamb’s album playing back. 45 entries stamped like a sugar cookie cutter fly shaped. the whir of a travelers memories. the backup disk full of paced meadows and sands. a black turtleneck kind of spy. the confidence and comfort of sifting time. falling in love and hair growing long. another year trimmed and set to a log. emotions and strong glue. forgetting a memory card and buying two. thanks, thanks. cardigans that look grandfather borrowed and the rippled blue of t-shirts and smiles. growing in art and sly expression. never sure where my size 8.5 feet will find me sidestepping. and loving every moment of not knowing.
