After just finishing Holy Skirts, a fictional novel about Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven -- poet, avant-garde and woman extraordinaire -- I was thrilled to hear Kje speak poetically to me this morning as I was dropping him off at a friend's house.
I had to write it down.
I love these days,
warm days when my hair is wet.
I shake my head back and forth
and back and forth
and stick my hands in the middle where
tiny wet beads of water hit all over.
