The Most Beautiful Thing I've Ever Seen
"I'm Iowan and Californian, Goddess and frump, poet and accountant, caregiver and nutcase. My Muse goes on vacation more often than George Bush, but I keep writing just in case I come up with something on my own. One thing is certain: I'm incredibly lucky."
It's black and it's red,
and sometimes white or blue
There are pictures of life
and pictures of life imagined.
Spinning wheels and pulsing capillaries.
Ever changing, always available,
the last thing at night and the first thing in the morning.
The insides of my eyelids.
