Kelly Flanagan's new book Loveable  has now hit the shelves. I recommend it...highly. We all need people to pick us up, swing us around, say How's my girl? or How's my boy? Nothing compares.

Growing up
I would visit Janet's house
Her father would greet me
At the door
Grab me
Swing me around
How's my girl?
That's all it took
For me
To know
I was seen
Janet's house had a kitchen clock
They kept it an hour ahead
So they wouldn't
Be late for things.
At my house
We were always early.
Early did not mean
Being seen.
