Favorite Quote:
"If you do not raise your eyes you will think that you are the highest point." - Antonio Porichia
OR "The bluebird carries the sky on his back." - Henry David Thoreau

Clean, dirty-brown eyes gnaw at me like salt at a wound and
I can’t tell whether I’m looking at or away from them.
Is there even a difference at this point?
A berry chew-smack-blow-pop turns my head and
I ask the one person to whom I never give.
In this room I’m always driving backwards on a freeway,
Rear window flooded with baggage.
She’s got nothing left to give me.
