I’m Nobody! Who are you?

"I’m Nobody! Who are you? 
Are you – Nobody – too? 
Then there’s a pair of us? 
Don’t tell! they’d advertise – you know! 

How dreary – to be – Somebody! 
How public – like a Frog –
To tell one’s name – the livelong June –
To an admiring Bog!” 


— Emily Dickinson

If One Day You Don&#8217;t Remember Me

If One Day You Don’t Remember Me

A Heart Once Opened

A Heart Once Opened

If I Could Turn Back Time

If I Could Turn Back Time

Why I Hate Reading Maps

I have unrolled a map
onto my kitchen table
and put one finger
where you are and
another where I am.

The space between
is only inches. That close,
I could feel you breathing.
I could reach out and
run my fingers through
every strand of your hair,
touch your lips and
barely need to move.

In the corner of the map
there is a guide for judging scale:
every inch a hundred miles
full of roads and rivers and trees,
the guide a sharp reminder
that you are where you are
and I am where I am,
inches apart.
