Be Smaller by Claire Tames Nelson

Claire Tames Nelson is a delightful poet and human writing from Savannah, GA. Her work has appeared on long receipts from CVS and discarded candy wrappers. When she’s not being smaller, she’s living larger on the back porch under twinkle lights, or on the couch with Cheddar Biscuit, Sunny, and Moo. A few of the greatest joys in Claire’s life are finding change on the street, returning lost items to strangers, and collecting ephemera. She has a tattoo of a sweet tooth, and her brother is her favorite person; he makes candy. If you can’t find Claire here, she might be around the corner buying a scratch-off lottery ticket.

  1. Wow. This struck a nerve with my love of animals and my messiah complex. That last line….I’ll be crying whenever it comes to mind.
