By d. Myers
slow down and watch it all collide
watch it trail like a fish
is there ever any sign
smelling dog food in a dish
I’ll play with monkeys in a barrel
and legos at the mall
gonna get another snow cone
while I buy my kid a doll
old cars, old shoes, old people
they help to keep it all intact
I’m getting better all the time
I’m getting so I like the cracks
little white fences all around me
I don’t feel too safe at all
fluffy curtains on the windows
and stuff hanging on my walls
great big trees and open highways
start to sooth my aching head
come and put me in a jacket man
and take me off to bed
Congratulations d. and good luck on your writing journey!
