after the breakup 

i told him that i loved the rain

and he said that he hated it

it was everywhere he didn’t want it to be at the moment 

it started raining saturday night

and i got a text from him

north atlantic garbage patch

it took me a little while to finally allow the wind to blow away your name when it was the first thought that would pop into my brain when i had news i wanted to tell 

your name would get swept in a vortex so fast, unable to escape

morning car ride wisdom

advice from my father on the key to a working relationship:

your most important values have to be the same

and if they’re the same

the little details can be different

he deserves a love like his own,

and so do i
