Starting Over

I wonder

Is there enough time left
For someone to learn how
I like my eggs
Or on what side I sleep
Which towel I prefer
Why I like The Wailin Jenny's
And Kurt Vonnegut
And what black walnuts mean to me

Is there enough time
To understand the way I dance
And what breaking cookies means
Or why I take so many pictures
How important running water is
And thunder
And why I worship the wind

Will anyone ever understand
How I love the way I love
Or what it means to stroke my hair
Or when to hold me when I joke
And when to step back when I cry
