Favorite Quote:
"Writing is not a job, something you do. It’s something you are, something you can’t not be. Being a writer is … about being so bewitched by language that writing seems real, and life by comparison feels like a dream." ~ Adair Lara


hopscotch oneandtwoandthree.
make me smile and i will
show you the world.

i know you love me
because
you pick out the lemon-flavored ones for me
because
you let me have the blanket
because
with you, it really can be that simple.

hopscotch oneandtwoandthree.
make me smile and i will
show you the world.

My eight-year-old sister is my favorite person in the world. This poem began when I wondered what our relationship looked like from her point of view.
