today is national poetry day, so open a poetry book and choose to read one poem – it makes you think about other things other than your mundane routine. i love this simple short poem by Olivia McCannon
You’ve just shaved and you smell of cream
I’m watching you press the metal point
Between buttons, over a collar, into a seam.
When you’ve left, I open the wardrobe quietly
I want to climb in and hang there with your shirts
With my creases, waiting for you to iron them out.
