If I was a spider princess, she said, I would spin webs the color of sky & catch drops of sunlight to give to children who watch too much TV & then everyone would remember to come outside to play. 
If I was a spider princess, she said, things would be different.
-Brian Andreas


I carry you with me into the world, 
into the smell of rain 
& the words that dance between people 
& for me, it will always be this way, 
walking in the light, 
remembering being alive together

Brotherly Love

They came to sit & dangle their feet off the edge of the world
& after awhile they forgot everything but the good & true things they would do some day
-Brian Andreas 


Are you a princess? i said. 
I am much more than a princess, 
but you dont have a name for it yet here on earth
-Brian Andreas

There was a single blue line of crayon drawn across every wall in the house.
What does it mean? i asked
A pirate needs the sight of the sea, he said & then he pulled his eye patch down & turned and sailed away.
