I want to share some of my favorite lines from one of her poems (B) here…
~And I’m going to paint the solar systems
on the backs of her hands,
so that she has to learn the entire universe before she can say,
“Oh, I know that like the back of my hand.”
~…when you step out of the phone booth and
try to fly, and the very people you want to
save are the ones standing on your cape…
~You will put the wind in win(d)some,
You will put the star in starting over and over.
~But I want her to know that this world is made
out of sugar; it can crumble so easily, but don’t
be afraid to stick your tongue out and taste it.
Her poetry rekindles my interest and appreciation for the magical, lyrical way words can be woven together.
