On Writing

Poem 354 – Things

Things

I didn’t do All The Things:
answer the emails
respond to the texts
make the phone calls
fold the clothes
exercise
breathe

I just didn’t do All The Things
but I did do Some Things
& there were tears & laughter
there was fear & long embraces
under the fog-hipped waning Moon

Now, I sit with Guilt
we’re writing this poem
together because she
is part of Me…
for now

& when we write
together
we can both breathe

  1. Beautiful words. Makes me think. The title, however, reminded me of the 1962 Bobby Darin song of the same name.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVRl5vQRStM [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVRl5vQRStM] Mark
