I KNOW THIS MUCH IS TRUE:
IF THIS WERE A STORY,
AN EXACT REPLICA
OF A FIGMENT OF MY IMAGINATION,
SHE’S COME UNDONE.

GOOD GRIEF
has settled into
THE LOVELY BONES.
She’s an AMERICAN WIFE,
living A HOMEMADE LIFE.
It’s not THE AGE OF MIRACLES.

She needs ROOM to feel
AT HOME IN THE WORLD.
EAT, PRAY, LOVE
is THE CENTER OF EVERYTHING
right now,
but she’s CHOOSING HOPE.

“WONDER,
STAY WITH ME,”
she says.

A BIG LITTLE LIFE
is WHERE THE HEART IS.

HAPPINESS SOLD SEPARATELY.
