I am a work in progress
Like a statue still inside its stone
Chiseled, from the inside out
Tap tap tapped into
becoming […]

the mama bird flies around
gathering food
and feeds it to her babies
from her own mouth to theirs
then perches above them […]

Needed nothing till

Rocking chair painted […]

When Mom worked nights Dad would cook
Pasta Aglio’olio
Dripping in Italian olive oil
The garlic slightly browned, crackling, still sizzling […]

And I’m surrounded by blue-eyed gentry
and blue-labeled beer
and an immense blue sky […]

Who threaten to interrupt my thoughts
Or threaten to interpret them
And I see it, a penny on the ground […]

more dense as the years go by
his acoustic guitar
propped against a corner wall […]

Fragile
guilt-ridden
consequentially unbalanced
Swallowing the pits of your
indecencies
Eternally loyal […]
