Caroline:

Shop the Story

such a funny phrase,
"daylight savings"—saving what?
dark by 4 PM.

Sam:

To fall back doesn’t
mean you will lose your balance,
but that you gain time.

If you cut a foot<br />Off the end of a blanket<br />And then sew it on<br /><br />To the other end<br />The blanket is not longer<br />Leave the clocks alone

Thick body-mind clouds<br />residual from nighttime abundance<br />a sliver clearer for the hour gain
