cherish the things that no one knows
never hear angel foot falls on snow;
the mysteries of the world are what
keep faith light and always in tow.

Lazarus’s Jewel Box

Large enough to hold
all the royal jewels,
desolate—all but

a silk pillow, nestled
among velveteen walls
protected by ash’s

heavy bonnet.

I love my best friends, but sometimes, I want to punch them in the face. Lovingly, of course.

Stop beating yourself up. You are a work in progress - which means you get there a little at a time, not all at once.

This is when I realize I won’t need

  • my-perfumed-secretsDo you have any really good Russian literature suggestions? I like Anna Karenina and Lolita. What ate your favorites?
  • quoted-books

    Love both of those! I have read a lot of Russian authors which is a little surprising to me since I haven’t read a lot of other nationalities. I guess, I was just assigned more of those in school. Anyway, here are some of my other favorites from great Russian authors:

    1. Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky 

    2. Invitation to a Beheading by Vladimir Nabakov 

    3. The Cherry Orchard by Anton Chekhov

    4. Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak

    5. The Enchanted Wanderer by Nikolai Leskov

    Thanks for the question!

    Everyone check out some Russian lit sometime. And I’ll look into finding myself some awesome contemporary Russian lit to read.

I was working nights then:
psych ward
bed checks—

missing patient.

I looked in the closet,
the bathroom, but he wasn’t there.

On hands and knees
I peered under, daring
the flashlight beam to follow
under the bed.

"What are you doing down here?"

Looking for my nose,
he said.

Oh boy, I’ve a real
crazy on my hands
tonight.
