my favorite way to 
travel is with a baguette
strapped to my backpack.

Smooshed in the backseat,
I know how sandwich meat feels.
This is empathy.

A (former) student of English, a lover of raisins, a user of comma splices. My spirit animal is an eggplant. I'm probably the person who picked all of the cookie dough out of the cookie dough ice cream. For that, I'm sorry.

A day at the pool
Is about one thing only:
Mozzarella sticks.

True vacation food
Can be eaten while I am
Bobbing in the pool

vacation is just
real life with a better view
when with little kids.

Salt, wine, butter, cheese
This is what vacation means
To me. And sleep, too.
