Favorite Quote:
There is freedom waiting for you
on the breezes of the sky,
and you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh, but my darling,
what if you fly?

~Eric Hanson


My lips ache
to kiss
the other side of the world
rustic buildings
colored sidewalks
exotic dances
I will never get the hang of
thick accents
freckled children

My lips ache
to kiss
a place set apart from
the waltz of office chairs
a town with no graffiti
and school buses that groan
along with their drivers
in this suburban
cage.
