a list of things I’m thankful for [poem]

1 – I live up here in Washington
and it’s cold and wet
and perfect
2 – I have several books to my name
hundreds of poems etched into being
and time to write the words
beating through my body
with every pulse
3 – I still know how to love
even after the hurt and the hollowed out dreams
I turned them all into terracotta pots
and planted my new hopes there
4 – I live up here in Washington
with its green and grey
and beautiful
