We roared the night we first met,
and then I got frightened and hid from you.
“I have gained nothing by the enlargement of my world; on the contrary, I have lost. I want to become more and more childish and to pass beyond childhood in the opposite direction.” -Henry Miller
I’m becoming a woman of tonics and potions, and only / my cast-off Catholicism makes me feel guilty of it…
In the evening after lying in bed sick all day,
I take to walking around my new neighborhood in Georgia.
It isn’t much of one, this bedroom community
in Savannah’s south side.
Well, I know I have arrived
And it's hard just to survive
But I'll stay alive
...And it is all right.
I love the sound of the rain.
I love my feet in the sand.
I love my arms wrapped around a great redwood tree.
