To my Mother:
Cold Seas and an Ocean Breeze, the waves crash wildly against the shore.
The unleashed majesty of the water, the barely contained awe and excitement of the witness.
This is what we live for.
This is what we love.
What if I am too clever to be clever?
You must leave these lands!
I love you like Spider-Man.
I love you like the colour purple.
I love you like bike rides and board games.
I love you like homemade mac ‘n’ cheese.
I love you.
If it’s already done then we can’t get in trouble for it.
Let it go, leave it alone, forget about it.
Where’s the fun in that?
I Love You with all of my heart and most of my attention span.
