you try so hard to stand still so perfectly
still when you're moved

bein' pretty? it's outta the question. "don't talk to me--i'm married to the sea."

just this dork, y'know? but in love always, with almost everything.

pretty much my very favorite mainstream rocker, doing her thing, that should be like all the others but somehow isn't, yes:

good eats

and there is my muse
returning home with a pail of milk.

He brings me
down to earth where all poetry begins

with such beautiful hands
that I am forever doing nothing but thinking

of objects
and asking him to hold them.
