In My Next Life Adaptation

In My Next Life

I will own a cottage warm 

as eyes of fire 

and roam the deep woods 

of the forest just past a village.

In my next life I will bake some bread, 

and enjoy the floury scent 

of the air as I run our bakery 

and settle down with relief 

by its register.

I’ll be a whiz at fashion, master five or six

new creative skills,  be carefree 

like the grandparents in movies always say. 

In my next life I won’t lie awake 

wondering why I hate the way I am.

I’ll still be fun and outgoing, but true 

and empathetic.

 

I will find you again

and again–just like this time
