Word: concrete and honey.

{Grace’s Tophography}

You may have thought this to be a romantic gesture.
Just as you may be surprised to learn.
That I am not part of this memory.
This girl isn’t me.
Do you not wonder what you were trying to hide?
Does she know you cut off her head?
She’s wearing red.
I don’t. I’d never.
Even though I feel like I’m bleeding.
I do like they buttons though. I bet you do too. The way they curve with the shape of her ‘topography’.
Where is this gate? Where did you take her?
Don’t bother answering.
I won’t be around to hear your response.
She’s too young. She wears ribbons in her hair.
What have you done?

    OK so, these "WORD" posts might be my very favorite! they're beautiful.

    and maybe this is uncouth to offer, but if you ever need a writer for one of these posts in the future, i'd love to be considered. it's such an interesting exercise. i actually did something similar on my blog recently. you can see it here: http://haystackoflight.blogspot.com/2009/10/i-used-to-think.html

    anyways, maybe that's tacky to offer. if so … i apologize. i'm just totally taken with your blog. :)

    have a great day!
