Dear Internets-

I love you dearly, but I'm afraid that for now, it's time for me to go. I found a new love, and she is the real world.

Perhaps sometime you two can meet, but for now, a sweet farewell.


PS: I come back to you to share a poem that egg once read to me one late August day to save my life.


You're sitting here with us, but you're also out walking
in a field at dawn. You are yourself
the animal we hunt when you come with us on the hunt.
You're in your body like a plant is solid in the ground,
yet you're wind. You're the diver's clothes
lying empty on the beach. You're the fish.

In the ocean are many bright strands
and many dark strands like veins that are seen
when a wing is lifted up.
Your hidden self is blood in those, those veins
that are lute strings that make ocean music,
not the sad edge of surf, but the sound of no shore.
