Favorite Quote:
Always bring a banana to a party.


You are small, not a speck of sand
  On any map. Once rosy with strawberries
  And trains and happy things.
  Unfriendly little town with scowls and missing teeth.

Sometimes you still seem friendly and nice, but you have 
  Dirt on your face, in your hair.
There are times in Ridgley when the strawberries come
  Back, but not often enough.
Otherwise it’s volunteer sirens and grubby children peeking
  From doors.
Rough groups of teenagers discussing things they
  Shouldn’t.
