1 and 2

I mean, who knew about this 30/30 challenge? I think we should try it.  With time limits or the ability to opt out.

1. Things I Carry

This fucking phone.
These wrinkles, these extra pounds around the abdominals,
Quickness to anger,
Quickness to despair,
Quickness to elate,
Every song you ever said you liked,
Fear of being duped,
Belief in God,
(Recently) my grandmother's prayer card,
I carry your heart with me, per e.e.,
The bathing suit my mother always told us to pack.

2. Knock on the Door

In Manhattan no one knocks on my door. You have to be buzzed into the building.
