Hungry

a found poem from Blake Lively’s first “Letter from the Editor” on Preserve.us (no longer available), July 21, 2014

we romanticize the people who’ve
filled our countless late nights
with their bare hands
and determined hearts

I let you in
more intimidated than I admit
your tongue creating magic
with a force of passion
with a curious spirit
with excitement and sincerity

(the whole world races)
(we tighten our laces)

to write this letter
to preserve a love affair
is the hardest thing I’ve done

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
