SHWM! We surpassed 5,000 FB likes! AAAHH! Here are Andrea, Kelsey, and Julia having a dance party!
My joy likes to run from my body
quick as it can.
I’ve been practicing holding it
like I practice holding my breath at the pool.
I can do about half a lap
before my panic freaks out
on its little red whistle.
My panic is not a lifeguard
but you can’t tell my panic that.
My panic googled “how to perform CPR on yourself.”
I get panic attacks when I’m being looked at. I get hungry in crowds, eat potato chips so I can control the noise, crunch the loud away. I spend a lot of time thinking about the people who choose the middle seat on the airplane. I miss home no matter where I am. I love good on paper. I listen to sad songs. I own more mini-trampolines than anyone I have ever known. Even my aunt who drank Tab. I sometimes wish time wasn’t always so good at what it’s good at, but I can dance the electric slide. I can remember exactly what it felt like when my dad took my training wheels off of my bike. It had a banana seat. I had everything I would ever need.
Very much looking forward to my return to Page Meets Stage onWednesday, June 18, at 8 pm at The DL Lounge in New York City (@TheDLNYC). The room holds 400, but advance tickets are recommended (available at www.PageMeetsStage.com)
