The Daily Read

  • I Am Young

    I am young, 

    But if I where a dog I would be in my late 70s

    And I have lived for 4x longer than most hamsters

    And 170 lifetimes of a fly.

    Each day I live is all a mayfly lives in their entire life.

  • My First Loves

    My first car has absorbed the beauty of your soul

    The wholeness of your heart

    Your voice rushes through the air vents and echoes through the quiet space

    It blows the flyaways of my hair
