I like

when my nail polish chips

because it looks like a Rorschach test.

And I like

finding pictures in my beer foam,

like you do clouds.


I love

the smell of old books


fresh cut grass

and I love

taking pictures

of the sunset




I want

my house feel like a home.

I want

to plant a garden

and buy chickens

and bees

and plant fruit trees

but wanting

to sleep

outweighs  my motivation

to do those things.


I worry

about my kids

and that I am not home a lot

and I think

I need to make more time


any time make

will have to come from


and I don’t know


to take it from.
