Awesome. Or Something.

This is the worst week ever for writing. No time. No focus. No inspiration. And, it would be great if I could write more stuff about something that some random stranger has a saved blog search for so they will leave me lecturing comments on my posts. That would be great. A girl can dream. (For the record, I do not collect any kind of animal and I have often stopped my car on the road and gotten out to rescue a little shelled creature from certain death, carefully placing it on the other side of the road, in the direction in which it was traveling. Several times I've done this in the rain, on my way to work, while wearing a dress and heels.)

It might take me some time to come up with those kinds of topics. In the meantime I'll post a poem I've been working on for years. I've worked on adding stuff to the first line off and on. This is my most recent revision. Still needs a lot of work, but it's what I have for now.

I say hello
to you and
you say hi and
ask me how I am,
but do you
really care?
I see it there,
behind your eyes.
I make you
ill at ease and
you wish I'd say
I'm fine and just continue
But sometimes
a kindred spirit
hides in awkward skin.
