somewhere inside

chasing cherries
under this yellow-white-gray sky

wind swaying hips
tugging on strings
(who knows where)

and i know somewhere else
girls are dancing
and i'm just
finding red

And the strings in the second stanza are a reference to the string theory.

Maya, I just saw that Miss Erin has a planned interview of you for the Summer Blog Blast Tour and I CANNOT WAIT. I've read other bits of you here and there, but you talking with Erin should be dynamite and inspired.

As all your poems (even your first one) are.

Love
