“My favorite room is in the branches

of the apple tree.

My favorite time of day

is when no one can find me.

My favorite door opens two ways:

receiving and receiving. My heart

swings between the ways, from thanskgiving

to thanksgiving, a thousand times a day,

while its naked feet graze

death’s knobby head

a thousand times a day.”

-Li-Young Lee, from the poem My Favorite Kingdom

*Painting Radiating Limbs #4, by Judith Belzer
