random love-list

 love: 



milk glass
quiet stacks of books
pinning things to walls


the sound of my dryer lulling
 me to sleep 


when these two colors 
meet on accident





when these three colors
meet on purpose 


this sweaty nose



 half-used art supplies

old photographs of my dad


fireworks high on a hill

 my grandpa's signature

Bonnaroo.

Manchester, TN

---------------------------------------------------------------------
We laughed so hard (I don't remember about what) 
we had some lady come up and ask us where the mushrooms were. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------
We slept here.
 Nuzzled between the old hippie couple,
 the young college hippies, 
and the hippie we brought with us. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------

We got there in time for this. 
I danced barefoot in the grass.
--------------------------------------------------------------------- 

We laid on the ground a lot. 
Sometimes we slept. 
We only had our legs trampled once
 (but never our faces). 
Usually we saw glow sticks flying through the air. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------


We hid in the car with the air conditioner on. 
We slept in the car because it was pouring rain. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------


I stood here and had a deep conversation 
with that girl Paulina from the East Coast. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------
We walked down these paths a lot. 
I lost you for a while. 
We tried to smoke Keith's cigarettes but we didn't know how. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------


 I stood on my toes to see. 
I happy-cried. 
We liked the singer's poses a lot.
 I decided that I liked the straight haired brother better. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------

My hand brace got all hot and itchy.  

---------------------------------------------------------------------


We stood along the fence and you told them to play this song. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------
We went to that dance party at Pod 6 and you 
became an Imp. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------


You carried that lemon around for two days. 
We had that serendipitous conversation with those guys who hid the watch that you found. 
We ate a lot of grilled cheese and ice cream. 
We were told there was no glass at Bonnaroo. 
We became best friends with that (locally famous) 
artist from Colorado. 
We took a garden-hose shower. 
We saw that naked grandpa with a backpack.
