Favorite Quote:
"since the thing perhaps is
to eat flowers and not to be afraid"
— E.E. Cummings (E.E. Cummings: Complete Poems 1904-1962)


in a strange panic
i suddenly am
shoving away the
branches of a tree
that resembles him.

the familiar
tree begs me deeply
to not venture back
into the deep dark
forest of my life.
