This white canvas represents the remainder of your life.
Please fill in the blanks with important information.
Tell me about how it feels to hold your only child,
share the fading sorrow of losing your first goldfish,
dare to try something, and fail horribly; then get up,
smile while we work until our legs cramp at night.
Create stories to make us
stay up all night with a flashlight.
we can fix it.
I will pray
for your courage,
a little fortune.
