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-
the shelf you rest on
