it's when I see leafless trees that I realize;

the grandeur of autumn was just the manifestation of dying things.

till snow adorns them,

they are just bleak reminders of a beautiful loss.


last night i challenged ryan to a push-up-off.

my left arm lost it for us at a measly 25.

and it’s paying the price for it today. i’m sore.


for quite some time i have been in need & in want

of a salad dressing container.

last night i dreamt i had one. euphoria.


there is a migratory movement currently manifest

by the sheer number of insects i keep finding in our living room.


as excited as i am about christmas,

i have yet to take down our halloween decorations.

perhaps i'm hoping our black birds will scare away afore mentioned insects.


ryan woke me up with a kiss

and whispered in my ear, “this is the best part of every day.”

and that was the best part of mine.
