I love you to the moon and back./
I love you brighter than the sun./
I love you more than there are stars in the sky./
I love you to Infinity and beyond.

Who To Cut From Your Roster: Romantic ConTEXTing Rhyming Poem

September 11, 2012

Since your parents,
children,
siblings,
grandchildren
are family,

but you sleep with your dog,
and can’t kick a cat.

So without a doubt,
I’m the one that should be left out.
And so again,
I am.
