My Professor asked me
for a Self Portrait-
A Poem.

If I were a punctuation mark, I’d be a comma.
I don’t like when things end.
I cry on the freeway a lot. 
My favorite number is 11.
1 is independent, but also a good partner.
I fell in love once,
It turned me into clay.
Peeling a clementine in one piece.
There is nothing more honest than a wilting flower.
On bad days, I'm the bottom layer of paint.
I believe in spending too much money on expensive shampoo
Just because it makes you feel good.
Joni Mitchell. 
I am the old rusting hair ties
in the top bathroom drawer
from a previous life full of ponytails. 
Reduce, reuse, recycle. 
Nothing ever stays the same.
