The New Summer

It has been a strangely pleasant start of driving large cars with small patience while staring at the sudden abundance of freshly bloomed extra large roses that seem to surprisingly be everywhere, wondering why I can't just uproot everything I think is beautiful and keep it all in a perfectly orchestrated array of borrowed cardboard boxes in the three-dimensional triangular closet under the wooden stairs.

There's a lot of newness emanating from my soul. Even this slip in to a (previously unfamiliar) slump of lazy, dizzy happiness, where I want to do nothing but sit around all day because I don't know when I'll feel this amazing again so best not disturb it.

Anyhow, it's always a good idea to fold, pack and ship away your baggage to a place you're never ever ever ever going to visit again because you almost died last time you were there and stayed longer than should ever have been necessary.

She was to live on, as the smoke from cigarettes, the smoke from a burnt turkey dinner, from bonfires, from forests, from places where children died frequently.
In moments like these, where her body and her brain were two separate entities, she could think only of the way his skin joined in perfect harmony behind his ears.
