My mother always said to hold on to what you love, whether it's a person or a pet or a stuffed animal.

So I hold on to this, even though you might not call it love. I'm her biggest fan--it says so on my t-shirt. I sit in front of the TV and watch the award shows--watching her hands, really, the rounded tips under the nails and the way she moves them just like anybody else moves their hands. I get a bit teary sometimes.

One day I'll meet her backstage "by accident". It's all planned out.

angry red lines the only evidence of your presence making me remember every second, every touch every whisper wishing like hell I had been on that plane with you frantically searching for ways to get to you sooner plotting and planning waiting for the rest of my life to begin feeling that ache where you were inside me that sweet, stinging ache and wishing you were here to kiss it I need your touch baby I don't know how to live without it anymore I don't know how to get through every day knowing I could have nights like that

Do you remember the table we bought at the flea market in Pasadena? We bought it from the old Chinese man who sold vintage posters of cigarette girls. Do you remember how I loved the cherry blossoms carved into the wood? We kept in the hallway of that Spanish cottage on...on...It's unimaginable, but I can't even remember the name of the street anymore. Anyway, it was the table with the little green lamp and a photo of my parents jeweled in dragonfly. Do you remember? Well today on another coast altogether, I discovered a crack in the face of it--as if someone had taken an ax to it, or some mysterious faultline was found.
