In my purse then:
gauloise, sharpies, lighters, gum, pomes, lipstick, two keys, dollar bills, concert tickets, mints, books, film cannisters, scribbles on napkins, mystery, tant pis, disarray,
In my purse now:
granola bars, grocery receipts, dog leash, tampons, tissues, 8 keys, lip balm, herbal drops, lists, cell phone, plastic cards, sewing kit, accessibility, preparedness, reason,
and maybe also there is some ennui.
The new era of andrea:
means parenting as a form of
making little museums out of baby boys
and following the trail of crumbs we found in childhood,
we are hungry now still
still hungry from eating
/the empty promise of obedience
so so different from self-discipline
so different from the self in general.
