life, the universe, and everything


It is freezing, biting, negative kelvin (ha) degree days like today that make me wish I could live in this world instead:

Nantucket

Flowers through the window
lavender and yellow

changed by white curtains –
Smell of cleanliness –

Sunshine of late afternoon –
On the glass tray

a glass pitcher, the tumbler
turned down, by which

a key is lying – And the
immaculate white bed


Dear William Carlos Williams,
I kind of (mmm litote) heart your poetry.

Dear Universe,
Please don't kill me next week (I'm talking to you, p chem and physics finals).
