favorite song right now
classes started and i love it! and i inaugurated our blender! and metalsmithing is harder than i thought! and i’m gonna be a kickboxer!
here is my poem
some things worth celebrating:
-aretha franklin singing real loud
-when i puncture the poached egg
and the toast below is a crispy crusty abode
-when we sleep in a tent
in a redwood park
making a fire out of uncle tom’s twig cabin
-“being bored is the one unforgivable sin”
-“the sky is omnipresent,
even in the darkness under your skin”
-we can drive to savannah, georgia,
listen to those AWs and AYs
nestled in a drippy maple syrup diner
-if we get back home late
and my tummy says more
we can put a chocolate chip cookie in the microwave
it’ll get so melty we can dip
and draw chocolate warpaint on our cheecks
ready for battle!
-at the end
we can stargaze in santa barbara,
close to a coast
frogs croak and stars shoot and under the water
fishes are going blub-blub.
alas, so much to celebrate.
