"The room is dim around us,
ivory globes, pink curtains,
bound at the waist - and outside,
a weightless, luminous, lifted-up
summer twilight."


--Excerpt from The Promise by Sharon Olds

These words. I carry with me lately.
Her line breaks are always perfect. 

(And I really miss using line breaks)
