or the streets of mayberry

 

or around our own dinner tables

 

or in the womb of the chapel

Teacher

Today I sit here in my car, trying to hold back tears, trying to stay strong

Politicians sniff coke 

The systems a joke

My heart expanded into spaces

I did not know I had,

as your entire hand curled

around my single finger pad.

I no longer had but one shadow,

I smiled down to see now two.

Over the years,

your bodies changed and grew,
