Tori bought me crayons

pieces of an egg puzzle
I couldn’t quite solve.

“…writes about religion
that really makes you think.”

her father seems like one
I’d share coffee with, raw.

I remember the day,
squeezing my temples,
learning Judy Garland’s icicle truths.

I grabbed a pen,
always reminding myself
not to sign as the remembered Marianne.

Wishing I could glide
across weathered Teflon
and bypass trees, wrists wrapped tight.

Oh, to stand on some aged beach
with a nude Adrien Brody.

*What you see are designs for double wall tumblers, made possible by hours of Tori Amos in the early morning. Both are for sale on my Etsy shop, Let’s Coast
