taking a bubble bath differ
in what you do with

the bubbles – though in a way,
it is all chemistry to me

things you love

things you love
and things you love
to hate are not so
different. years
have a way of
both sharpening
and dulling the
experience
so that when i say
red velvet cake,
you know that
i mean ugh
and when i say
red velvet cake!,
you know that
i mean thank you,
you really
shouldn’t have
,
i still love you

celebration

the future is layered

the future is layered
with the unknown,
in a state of powdered
sugar perfection,
like a forkful
of fine pastry,
readied at
the mouth – the
present is watering

two slices into

new year’s resolution

new year’s resolution:
chocolate cake
once-a-week –
January bakes
generously, and
we know ourselves
better than most –
it is easier to
make resolutions
that are bittersweet

one too many

one too many
birthdays this
week, we have
run out of things
to say, but we happily
take communion
with you, solving
the puzzle of
life with pieces
of heart and hands
