Frosting the Windows
by Megan Guimbellot
I would settle in any gingerbread house you built// frost the windows and line the drive with jellybeans
Take me out for gumdrop shots and sugar cookie martinis// I'll set out with you in a candyland world
Let's coat our walls in pressed flowers and pressed pages
I'll press notices against light posts
missing signs for people we used to be
Let's rip down streetlights and put up arrows that streak
we can move forward.
Author's Note: but I doubt it

I really enjoyed this campaign. Loved the "streetlights,.... streak and ...shriek" line and especially "missing signs for people we used to be". Thanks!

I wish I knew who you wrote this to/for! I really have enjoyed reading it. "Moving forward", oh now that is a mouthful! And its meaning!??!, growing up, forgetting, I'm not sure. Growing up is not easy, ask my 2nd wife of 35+ years who doesn't think I ever will! and she is probably right!
