If you ever have any doubt that I am gonna live up
to the altitude of your highest hopes, remember
It was for you that I overcame my fear of flying.
For you, that I learned the ropes of rescue remedy
Do not, under any circumstances, rip off the top of the bottle
and start chugging it like booze.
You’ll freak out everyone on the plane.
And you don’t need enemies at 30,000 feet.
Trust me.
Honey, you just need to know.
This is the first time I’ve ever done this without looking for an exit row

— Honey,

And if you’re going to walk out of my life and leave, I ask one thing of you. Once you’re gone and you see that I’m doing fine, don’t you dare come back.

A goal without a plan is just a wish.

Ma, I don’t know how to tell you this
so I’m just going to say it.
Little Tommy runs inside slapped in mud
and says he’s dirty.
I’m dirty, Ma. I’m dirty in ways that can’t be washed.
At eight you used to say to never forget
my knees—back or front—to scrub hard,
let go of all the filth of a good day.
I can’t remember the last time I had a good day, Ma.
I scrub my knees and I scrub until they burn
a bright pink but I’m still dirty.
Do you hear me? I’m still dirty, Ma.
Yes, I went to church last Sunday and prayed
but I think I made the holy water dirty too.
I think I ruined it before it could save me.
The boys always say my name wrong but I still
turn around, I go along, I let them call me
what they want as long as they want me.
Do you get it now, Ma?
I have grime under my fingernails and my stomach
is full of swallowed regret and I’m dirty.
I look in the mirror and pronounce my own name
wrong, too. I go along. Until it sounds real. Honest.
I don’t know how to tell you this
without breaking your heart, without you
checking behind my knees and nodding.
I don’t know how to tell you I’m dirty without
begging you to please not say,
“I know, I know. A mother always knows.”

Love makes you feel out of control. I think that’s how you know it’s right.
