Ran into another banger of a poem from Ocean Vuong. I get all my poetry from instagram and tiktok which is probably a bad thing. But it still hits like a brick.

Don't you know? A mother's love 
                    neglects pride
                the way fire
neglects the cries 
        of those it burns. 

This is just lovely.

The one I ran into today was:

Brooklyn's too cold tonight & all my friends are three years away.

The longing in these words and the nostalgia are palatable.

I've ordered the book, night sky with exit wounds.

Bit of a break from our regular programming.
