As If Love
were cool and simple, jade against skin.
As if early gifts could negate late inattention.
The ways she just stands there, tippety
with counterweights, hands jammed in pockets.
As if even my seeing them would be a thanks
I don’t deserve. As if her wrists, bare as the day
Photoshoots with me are so obnoxious.
I think Dad will like ‘em.
Ana you are both lovely and adorable! Lovaborable!
US rivers in the contiguous 48 states, assembled in vector ink from public USGS data by Nelson Minar. It’s like elegant porcelain, made of digital water.
