You are my first breath
every morning
and while dreams linger
— a gallery of half-remembered
that left an impression
on my heart —

I know whatever comes with
my second breath
I can survive if you stay
with me
until my final breath.

My name is Phillip. I am a Tar Heel born and bred and watch every Yankees game I can. I'm still searching for my own TARDIS. My first novel, "The Alien in the Backseat," is available now!
