Dear Michigan (Yes),

I will be out of town with Q and the mice for the next week with no Internet access, so I am posting a short poem I wrote a few months ago. Until we're back, Michigan. I'll be thinking about you and about how much I love you. I hope you have the best week!


i want to make you breakfast in bed,
want to walk, even in rain after rain,

rain after sun, hands entwined,
fingers running over across around each other,

want to pull your shoulder under mine,
hip to hip, to stop on some far off road,

no cars passing by, just you and me
and gray trees climbing sky, to turn in close,

lip to lip, just you and me and the many
sounds of birds singing, yes and yes and yes.
