Having fun

Bought
2 mugs at the thrift store,
Teal,
setting a table of hope
in the
most
cliche way possible,

Ohhh,
I’ll buy two
just in case
there is a happy ending
for this strange girl that I know

The handle broke on one them
the most
predictable thing that could happen

what’s cooking?

open

My favorite part of a flight
is the turbulence.

Quite frankly,
anything that makes
me instantly face the fragility of life,
excites me.

For a rare moment in the
infinity
that is the sky,
we are shaken like a
a cocktail
and placed soberly on the ground.

Reasonable bounds

As I was getting dressed this morning,
I started to hate my clothes.

This mustard sweater
just isn’t enough.

It’s pilled,
worn,
and empty of youth.

These sneakers are too small.
And the edgy rip in my jeans has
frayed into a gaping hole,

I need a new wardrobe,
and new way of life,
one that is simple
or
extravagantly elegant.

This year

We’re leaving a whole year behind.

But
This year,

This year I’ll be whole

I’ll sleep into 2016
like the well rounded being
that I strive to be

Starting off the year
drunk and defeated
was for last year.

All of the memories made
and not made will
be put in a file,
and sent to the publisher.

I will clean,
I will get rid of the things that don’t bring me joy,

Caring all of this stuff around can
get tiresome.

For this new year,
I will be
light.
