In case you were wondering, the title of the about me section (What I Wanted This To Say) comes from a Ted Kooser poem titled “Pocket Poem.” I read it again just now, and I wanted to share it.
If this comes creased and creased again and soiled
as if I’d opened it a thousand times
to see if what I’d written here was right,
it’s all because I looked too long for you
to put in your pocket. Midnight says
the little gifts of loneliness come wrapped
by nervous fingers. What I wanted this
to say was that I want to be so close
that when you find it, it is warm from me.
