twenty eight

hold your breath and count to 28
change is slow but i feel it taking shape.
folding over is like waves
on origami ocean tides, we sway

like blueprints constantly being rearranged.
over microscopes we plan and strain.

the finest print in the whitest ink,
before it dries, there's no time to think.
it feels like everything we've known is sink or swim.

-sleeping at last

happy birthday to me!

this past year was all kinds of wonderful, 
but i am ready to graduate to year twenty eight. 
here we go, sink or swim!

xxoo, lacey
