farewell


ring

thanks to Krista

brought to me all the way from Ecuador

the only ring I’ve ever worn for a significant amount of time

has gotten me more comments than any article of clothing I own

too big for any of my fingers but I wear it anyway

part of my outfit every day

cracked





So long.

love the poem! haha it sounds like haiku or something, but I think those have less syllables...?

Yey! Suzy, the poet is back. I'm glad those creative writing brain cells aren't wasting away! : )

I cried when I read this post. So profound, so close, so precious. The missing ring will be a part of you always. Ok, I'm done cheesin it up.
