weave

when i was 7 i had a 4×4 woven blanket,
i’d always had it.
baby pink and blue and yellow and green
it disappeared into the washer one day

when i was 17 i found my blanket
folded on a pile of other old things
i thought were gone forever

i carried it into my first dorm room
into my second dorm room
and my third
on a trip to austin, texas
to every room i made mine

i’m working on loving it
to the last string

it’s 12:30pm on a wednesday
i’ve been out of bed 3 hours
i had 1 maple donut
and 24 ounces of coffee
i opened a beer 10 minutes ago
i’ll probably make 2 vodka and seltzers
my new job starts in 7 days
i haven’t put in my 2 weeks at the old
i might take 20 steps from my couch today
and only want to be awake until 8:30pm

this is exactly where i am
