what’s pretty today (that i cannot show you)

again, you will have to trust me on this
since i cannot show you:

  • the cold black and green grapes in a blue bowl.
  • the baby’s wet mouth against my forearm
  • the sun setting just so through the maple tree
  • that really long hug, his head full of curls
  • the sparkly birthday invite on my clean desk
  • the good, short cry over a silly memento
  • the unbelievably rowdy 7p.m. bird party in my backyard
