taught me to type rhyme
and the trees, the way they wear different gowns
for each season’s ball, I want to dance with them all
with an open jaw. Life is a
a song’s long crescendo, rain the laughter,
the hills are my happily-ever-after.
The nostalgia of the last cove, and
love of the newest river bend.
My life is the lemon and the zest.
Offer me anyone else’s, and
I’ll take mine above all the rest.
