I have been writing for others these days, which I haven’t done in years. Writing, and reading my work, and being extremely humbled by the kindness of strangers listening and adulating my words. 

Of course, I’ve been writing about my ex-girlfriend a lot. I broke the rules. She sent me a text, and then called me. And the missed call sat in my phone like a seed, and I was sad. So. I called her back.

And “American Sentence” is 17 syllables. “Limbs, warmth, and quiet minds. But I chose family. Now my love and I, we weep.”
