My latest original, five-line poem. What’s the nomenclature for a true poem? If you write a story that’s true, they call it creative non-fiction. What about poetry? In any event, I hope you like it.
Will of the Good
sometimes, I think about how her memory of me will be
like a forgotten favorite stuffed animal, left to roll around
in a trunk until someone dropped it off at Goodwill
to be touched by fifty other hands, not knowing its history;
and the girl stuffed into a new universe without me.
