You said the Greeks said "know thyself"
and "all things in moderation"
and I agree it may be best
to know me moderately, a woman who loves
cookies, movies, Converse hi- and low-tops,
books, cats, cardigan sweaters
and--immoderately--you. Know me deeply
and there's the mire of things
I'm still learning. You know how I thought
I didn't want kids? I've learned
it was only that I'd never known any
nor any adult who could surprise me
into imagining myself with a family.
I hope everyone enjoys the day. We're planning to go to the Experience Music Project to finally see the Nirvana exhibit!
