--THE MOON TOLD ME
THAT THE MASS AND STRENGTHOF THE REAL STORY
DOES NOT LIE
ON THE HANDS OR LIPS,
NOT THE GROIN
OR EVEN IN THE HEART.
IT IS ALWAYS IN THE EYES.
THE MOON SAID:
KEEP THEM OPEN—
WHEN YOU KISS.
ALL THE ANSWERS
EXPOSED AND NAKED,
EVERY SINGLE TRUTH
…This morning the waves have all left the lake. No boats bob. The eagle’s in hiding. The beaver must be holding his breath underwater.And still it’s beautiful.
…The keyboard is slippery and dull. It keeps getting stuck on the K and P. It’s all I can type. Occasionally I get an L. That’s how it goes some days.

I said, "that's cool, you're gonna be a big sister."
Then She told me, "Can I rub the baby in your tummy?"
But another little boy jumped in, "Boys don't have babies in the tummies!"
And that poor girl looked so confused and pointed at my stomach saying, "But, but, but..."

-Did you hear about the Italian Chef?
-In my news feed tonight, one friend getting married tomorrow and another one got engaged tonight. But I hired a new housekeeper today, so that's probably the most important relationship of my life.
