"Poetry and hums aren't things which you get, they're things which get you. All you can do is go where they can find you" – A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
I am not a writer because I only write for you.
I make you into words and you are made material,
I give you a body of letters so I can think of you again and again.
I build you from my memories because I love you and because I can
and because in doing so I make you mine.
I write you in the way that I see you,
each favourite piece I place right here
transferred like code into binary. Yet, when I read you it is with exploding colour
that you walk among my memories.
Each poem is like a shrine to me, to be embellished and prayed at secretly.
