These are my best gifts: by Logen Cure

Listen to a reading of “These are my best gifts:” by Logen Cure.

a slick liar’s tongue, the charm of a petty thief, ribs like a junkyard dog, a space on the other side       of an ampersand.

I want you to have them        & have them &                     have them,                please;

they & I are            for you.

I used to carry        secrets like    marbles in my mouth;            I laugh without choking.

You know to hold a piece     of an infinite heart without                    asking it                           How much?
