we are all miniature.

one day you wake up in a comfy bed with two dogs and wonder if you even slept at all.


one day you go to sleep at your parent's kitchen table while simultaneously watching basketball and oprah.

i've been doing these things.
laughing, thinking, crying.

when all i want to do is
eat girl scout cookies and knit and pretend.

i want to build a fort.
eat a pineapple.

dance at the place where we first kissed.

immediacy and intimacy are separated by a page or two.
but let's get real.

let's get as real as we can without being unimaginative.
