Henri Matisse's The Dance (1910)

i made a funnel cake a year ago that looked like

it's funny the kind of

that life will show you

if you're looking

(and look at how beautiful it is, too)

& everywhere there is love to prove it.

there are mama rats giving birth

( Tim Knowles )

there are wooden sticks from the 12th century

"my love,

let us too yield to love."

there are joys small and fresh and gentle

life has a way of making up for itself

there are trees that draw

"Love conquers all;

Virgil once said:

i can't stop thinking about it, you know?

yield to love

it's just like


i too


inscribed with nordic runes that read:

kiss me."

talking to you
