Moments with Miriam

1 (written on the inside cover of Anne Sexton's Love Poems)

Miriam - Jan 06'
"my swan, my drudge, my dear wooly rose"
let's read this together while not wearing clothes

"If I asked you to shave your beard, would you?"
"Are you asking me to?"
"well, if I was to ask, would you?"
"probably not"

3 (items 5-6 on the grocery list)

Zantac- because you make my heart burn
Cheese- unless that was enough ^

4 (on a winter day, on the gathering frost of a window)

Love U

5 (a ripped piece of paper, folded and placed within a half empty pack of Marlboro medium 100's)

I took three because I'm out.
And smoking's bad for you.
Only smoke after sex.

With me


"I love you too."


"I just don't think it's enough anymore."

    Like this one.stretches the bonds of typical verse and that,when un-forced,is always welcome.the moments are also varied. it creates a realism to the piece as it is one of memories being revisited
