A sonnet-like poem about friendship.
An awful offal stench pervades the earth
Of dreams not so deferred as left to spoil.
Behind facades of plastic slickly buffed
Securely sealed organic instincts rot.
We swim among the bits of broken toys
So fractured due to anger bloated, burst
Such shrapnel meant to lacerate our skin
And thus to spread the dolls' disease to us.
What luck to find the ones of thicker flesh
Not callous mimics of synthetic lambs
But those of sturdy stuff enough to dream
That roses grown of compost bloom supreme.
The hand that reaches out though pricked by thorns
Bleeds well in mine, dear gardener, as we walk.
Runaways, America's Lost Youth By Maryanne Raphael & Jenifer Wolf
