Hot Springs

entry picture

My wine glass doesn't fit in the cup holder

My happy meal has the same old toy

I thought I was ok with older

But I'm devastated

Cinnamon sass

Sarcasm was your art

Your heart so much bigger

Than the best fed panther in the park

There's no missing

You're always here

I have every crackling word

Every growling laugh

Every smarmy sweater

Every holiday passed

Forever in my soul

You've etched your scrawl

The smell of your home

The brightness of your park

Every alligator and quartz

Every joke and notebook

We love you so much

Forever in your mountain

Longer with me

The stars are brighter now over Arkansas

With your presence

Ever present

Ever beautiful

You gave us more color

You gave us more joy

You gave everyone everything

You are the epitome

Of just being

interesting place Hot Springs - I enjoyed the Cultural Centre in one of the old bath houses on Central Ave but my motel that night was a health and safety disaster zone. Enjoyed your poem Collin.
