As poets, we nourish our loved ones, and they nourish us, as best we can.


I wish I could take language

                                                and pour it into a bowl

                                                of warm, nourishing thoughts

                                     I would splash cool, soothing sentences

                                                around its edges

                                                for you to stir

                                     I would adjust the fragrant spice

                                                of self-assurance

                                                for you to inhale

                                     I would have you listen

                                                to the plop of paragraphs

                                                saying, “Hush, hush, it’s all right.”

                                     Then I would spoon you sweet phrases

                                                to heal damages past words

                                                may have caused
