knee deep in weeds

notes on living a life


“I don’t believe we should carry backup
plans in life’s suitcase—

they’re too easy to unpack 
like living a life in yoga pants, 
so comfortable our hips spread
into new timezones...

” Kelli Russell Agodon, Hourglass Museum 

i surface, halfheartedly
rehearsing for life
offering up monosyllabic conversations to others
while deep inside my head
the ongoing conversations consume me
i make detailed list for living
and yearn for a time when it will all come natural
and i won't feel as if i am drowning


all is well friends, just feeling a bit overwhelmed today,
