rich little poet

Updated on July 4, 2014

rich little poet

eating up

rich little moments

with over-worked fingers

and hungry tongue

and drive-by fancies.

this is the story of your life:

this mother deer and baby fawn sprinting through your yard,

dragging a baby gasp right out of your under-worked, gaping mouth.

tiny terrifying miracles happen when you are utterly alone:

no daughter, no distraction, no food in the cupboard,

no liquor in the cabinet, no one knocking at the door.

these are the things that matter:

the things you never saw coming;

the rich little red minutes that kick-start

your heart.
