Some Things

Dec 5, 2017

It came up in conversation

The fact that I’ve been writing on my blog

Every day

I told her

“A lot of good things have come out of it

But good writing isn’t one of them.”


I asked the fans a question

And they answered back

With warmth and smiles in their words

It was helpful to hear

And most of all I kept thinking

“They responded!”


Papers come in so many weights

And textures

And colors and

It turns out

One isn’t better than another

They’re just different

Just like people

And pasta


Every morning I wake up guilty

Over being so tired

And sleeping in because

I’m so tired

Because I stayed up too late


Every morning I tell myself

“Tonight I’ll go to bed early.”

But then the evening comes

And the kids are tucked cozy in their beds

And I am free

To work and make

And dream
