it could be any afternoon
I am a poem. so are you.
I stand alone. you stand beside me here.
I am a book. I write words. I mean more than that.
I am an only son. I am first. I am last.
I am a student on a yellow bus.
I was young. I have memory. I remember you.
I remember loving you. true, for better, for worse.
I do the best I can. seriously.
I refuse to fight. past and present tense.
I drove a red pickup truck. I smile when I can.
I have rescued people. I’ve been rescued.
I am older than before.
I am broken inside.
I love. I eat. I sleep. my life.
I swim. the ocean is one home.
I am the center of a universe. one of them.
I am the salt in my blood.
I sleep both more and less than I might.
I am a friend. I am loyal. I’m not the best.
I try to be who I am. I am me anyway.
I am tall. I am short.
I am soft spoken. I am persistent.
I endure. for now.
I love you. that is the best of me. of all of us.
I remain. I will go away.
I love you. I have nothing better to say.
