Have you read the incredible poem, “Good Bones,” by Maggie Smith at Waxwing Mag?
If not, here’s a taste… (click it to go read the whole heartbreaking, heart-sustaining poem)…
“Life is short, though I keep this from my children.
Life is short, and I’ve shortened mine
in a thousand delicious, ill-advised ways,
a thousand deliciously ill-advised ways
I’ll keep from my children. The world is at least
fifty percent terrible, and that’s a conservative
estimate, though I keep this from my children.”
