You could do your own talk shew!

Moving is always a massive upset for me too. Actually, pretty much any change that goes beyond switching brands of creamer tends to make me freak out, and when things in my life ARE stable, I tend to have nightmares about them not being stable. But you are an incredibly talented writer, with an amazing book that I read cover to cover and love, and I see a long, fruitful future in store for you. This is a great blog post--all the wit, strength, and vulnerability that set your poetry apart as something amazing. I hope our paths continue to bring us together.

left the house

of coming back
