this is important

and i am, again, asking you to pray if that's a practice you keep.

this week has been a bit catastrophic, and at press time both my mother and my roommate are in the hospital. my mother's shattered knee is nothing to sneeze at, and i appreciate any prayers you will offer up for her expedited recovery, but i'm looking more for prayer for my roommate.

she's on a respirator. again. and has been in the hospital since tuesday after having an allergic reaction to a pear. i'm concerned about her. there are tears in my eyes as i type this.

a few words of blessing would be sufficient. her name's melissa, if you think that will help your god locate her spirit.

thanks. it's hot out there, no?

a history poem

this is not nearly as meaningful/heartfelt as it seems. i was just moved to write because i'm starting to realize how long i've been here, and how many love misadventures i've been through- crazy!

i've been kissed here before

he kissed me tonight
in a place i've been kissed before.
this time
there were no
fireworks.
no tingle in my belly,
no disbelief in the giddy
happiness
imparted.
there was, though,
a bittersweet memory of
you
and the milk-chocolate-sweet
beginning of
us--
that first bright sunny kiss
at astor square.
