A great little cleave by Andrea. Something to ponder on.

I’m out of town until Thursday.

Also, I’m trying out some different formatting.


Lots more cleaves and thoughts when I return.

           Things I Need by Andrea Barton

             In the end - it comes to this:
          I parse words - on a grocery pad
        meant for lists - for things I need.
      A line drawn down - the middle of my words
            my thoughts - rent in half
            on a Sunday - in the wee days of this new fall
at the end of September - I believe
                 I need - and want
            to remember - these words.
