having a disaster
is like a wedding and funeral
all at once-my life is summarized
into a tribute and its surprising
who shows up
i am registered for gifts
and people keep on giving
my list, pile of thank you notes
and addresses is overwhelming

and now I feel like I am pregnant
my boyfriend is rushing to make
an honest woman out of me
because there are no more
studio apartments
I am rushing to rebuild
a home before the winter
I am like a bird with eggs
I am nesting
with whatever scraps I can
