how I keep resorting to change,which is why I don't seem to make cents

DEAR __________
I am VERY sorry for my mixed up emotions.
I noticed-it today.
that person who knows exactly which compartment to place
each baby feeling
each bone of emotion.

I take your hands so seriously.
Just as I take your words
and swallow them in pieces

one day when my sentences are stored in a glass jar
replacing the jam in your country store

i'll show you the way I coulda-
changed everything!

once again
the shelf you rest on
is overlooked
