day 113: elephant

im chinese
13 is bad luck
luck is the sweat that dries on my back
my back is brown
brown reminds me of roots
roots remind me of home
dad says home is where the soil is softest
soft soil is easy to grow in
growth is no longer my favorite word
i favor fat animals
elephants are fat and have cool spelling
elephant is my new favorite word
words hold my skin together
im still figuring out what holds my heart
