When you are drinking red wine out of a juice cup
and you are not a mom yet
when you write letters to the people you most care about
because they are out of contact.
These will be the nights that it will be most important to remember
that time is just a passing thing
even though life is short
even though it is even fleeting
you just sort of …
gotta get through it, ya know?
When I close my eyes, I see baili hi and we are climbing the mountain to the waterfall.
But we aren’t. We are in North Carolina
and you are going through hell.
I am not. Going through hell that is.
getting through it, ya know?
