here's to a new year

sometimes i forget
and build a house
on quicksand,
feed peanuts and shellfish
to those with
weak immune systems,
swear in front of my grandmother
and sometimes
i move from cities
and countries
at inopportune times...
sometimes i ruin absolutely everything
and i can usually
admit when i am (disastrously) wrong...
it was wrong to paint
that room cantaloupe colored,
it was wrong to
sleep with that boy from
great britain,
it was wrong to wear black legwarmers
with green tights
in college that one time....
i should not have


i won't call old M any more.
i won't drink until my birthday-- okay, perhaps start that one tomorrow....

and it was wrong, absolutely wrong to spend $500 on a book rather than rent. That's my list at the moment!
