Favorite Quote:
"Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known."
— A.A. Milne

I knew
you would discover it
just after I left
one farewell to another

but you could find it beautiful
that red ornament
which used to hang
so whole and crimson
varnished with light

now chopped up
the light stares in
a million directions
as it crunches under your
slippered feet
