His Father and Mother being architects, Daniel learned to print perfectly before the age of 5.

His Father was a towering man who wore a chocolate brown felt hat and had an almost constant smile. He smelled of mint and trees. Daniel's Mother had golden curls that wreathed her face. She smelled of soap and apples and seemed to float when she moved. So when it came time to learn cursive, Daniel wasn't particularly interested.

This decision dismayed the nuns. All year they stood behind Daniel and rapt him across the head each time he refused. It was a long year.

[sounds like |Colleen - Everyone Alive Wants Answers]

since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;

wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are a far better fate
than wisdom
lady i swear by all flowers. Don't cry
--the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids' flutter which says

we are for eachother: then
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life's not a paragraph

And death i think is no parenthesis

While he slept, she sat down at the kitchen table and made a list of his pros and cons as a partner. She suspected she could do better, but she had to see the math.

Their years had dragged on ho-hum, neither good nor bad, never enough to justify a further move in either direction. After she completed the list with Pros such as: funny, hard working, and smells good, and cons like: forgetful, passive, and selfish, she then attributed a number value to each one, a worth in her own mind.

The numbers just didn't add up.

The son moved when the Father did, and when he heard his Father stop, the son stopped also. He knew how to still and soften his footfall by walking lightly on the edges of his feet. This way, he crept down the stairs, padded the halls silently. The Father wasn't aware of the son's presence or location.

Once, the Father made an unexpected, sudden turn around a corner where the son was standing. The Father, surprised, visibly jumped and had to clutch at his chest. The son noted this, and was sure to surprise his Father more often.

He had the seeds sitting in water until the shells parted and something alive started to peek out. He did it like his teacher had told him last year when they grew flowers in pots by the Project Room window. His older brothers said it wouldn't work. "You can't grow oranges in Maine. Everyone knows that." He figured they were lying. They lied about everything. His Mother shook her head and said "Don't make a mess," then his Father smiled and patted his shoulder, which made him think he was on the right track.
