Love Poem For Self. It’s in my first book, The Nickel Tour. It was inspired by a poem by Sharon Olds, I can’t remember the title but it is in The Unswept Room, where she talks to her 50 year old self from the perspective of her 80 year old self. I often pretend I use to be a grotesque sea creature and now I am a real live human. I love my ankles and calves so much when I do that.
