Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

a simple poem of self-reflection

I’m nobody you know.
Please, don’t see me.
If I could fade deeper into the dark,
I would, you see.

Do not be afraid.
I have so little to share.
My cupboards are annoyingly empty.
My table is irresponsibly bare.

I live here in the park with others.
We share just wine and song.
I couldn’t do anything right if I tried.
Alas, I couldn’t do anything wrong.

Never mind your children.
They’re safe as safe with me.
I know where all the monsters are hiding.
I share the air they breathe.
