"Climb the mountain so you can see the world, not so the world can see you."

"Lately, I’ve been thinking about who I want to love, and how I want to love, and why I want to love the way I want to love, and what I need to learn to love that way, and who I need to become to become the kind of love I want to be… and when I break it all down, when I whittle it into a single breath, it essentially comes out like this: Before I die, I want to be somebody’s favorite hiding place, the place they can put everything they know they need to survive, every secret, every solitude, every nervous prayer, and be absolutely certain I will keep it safe. I will keep it safe."

into the alley behind your
apartment and trace the paths
of power lines through
autumn with your finger.
Feel free to pretend your clothes
are secrets and shed them like leaves
beneath the stars."
