when the phone rings
I too would like to hear words
that might ease
some of this.
I felt so much pride, so much love. You get a handful of days like this in a lifetime. Take in every minute. They’ll be over soon enough, and you never know what tomorrow will bring.
I felt like I should salute. If only I knew how.
I’d like to file a missing person’s report—on my clone. It’s nearly 2012. He should have been here by now.
If I had my way we'd sleep every night all wrapped around each other like hibernating rattlesnakes.
Nothing makes you think you might need years of therapy like saying the word breasts in front of your mother.
