my friend's birthday last sunday. happy belated, naomi rogers.


(last sunday: eighteen candles) rob's challenge

"you have beautiful hands"
"oh, thanks"
"they fit you -- writer's hands"

she said this with frailty,
in our humanistic inerrancy.
i think i can paint the picture for you.

here:

[(make a wish)]

"thanks for the ride"

[i walked out of the car,
with my hands in the pockets]

Great poem, Z!

Should it read "..with my hands in MY pockets"?

I love this. I picture a cold fall day and a mostly quiet ride home through dark streets. How you managed to conjure up that image is what makes you so good.

One moment in time written on paper for an eternity. I love those writer's hands; they create!
