grudges are too hard to hold with these small hands 

being angry at the universe is like being angry at the wind for raining 

I can’t help but think of how you would love the Marvin Gaye stamps we got for our wedding invitations 

you’d love the shades of purples

greys and eucalyptus notes

statement shoes and pops of color throughout

tying knots into forget me-s

grudges are too hard to hold with these small hands 

but I promise not to let the memories slip through 

like 

slip through like—

instead they will be sandpaper

anger doesn’t look good on the genes you passed down to me 

and it’s not in my nature to scowl

but every now and then 

I decide I will never forgive blank

he/she/it/them/blank/no name 

entity of some sort or not 

you’d tell me that staying mad won’t solve anything 

but if it did 

I’d never wash my face
