So I’m finally doing Phase Two of settling into my apartment–finding places for all the bits and bobs that’ve been lurking in the corners. This requires going into the cabinets in which I crammed all my stuff and taking things out, so that I can make some space for the corner-lurkings.

It’s amazing, the stuff I’ve saved. I’m recycling pages and pages of stuff from classes I taught 6 years ago, entire Hebrew textbooks, sheafs of ancient paperwork dealing with ancient matters, luachs (Hebrew calendars) from 3 years ago, address books filled with people I don’t remember or who don’t remember me, what I had saved of my rolodex (God bless life before gmail) and throwing away…. lots of floppy discs. (Well, sending them off to a thrift store that might be able to reuse them, anyway). About dang time.

Anyway, I also found a printout of this delightful poem lurking among the stuff, so I figured I’d share:

God Says Yes To Me
Kaylin Haught

I asked God if it was okay to be melodramatic
and she said yes
I asked her if it was okay to be short
and she said it sure is
I asked her if I could wear nail polish
or not wear nail polish
and she said honey
she calls me that sometimes
she said you can do just exactly
what you want to
Thanks God I said
And is it even okay if I don’t paragraph
my letters
Sweetcakes God said
who knows where she picked that up
what I’m telling you is
Yes Yes Yes
