every February is a garden 

was this it then? 

a shudder 

and a cellphone sort of disintegrating 

at the bottom of the ocean? 

little plaques with dashes, commas, semicolons..  

and a tear stain..? 

no make ups or do overs? 

or round the ways again? 

just a 30 second stroke of genius 

where “oh” meets “very well then..” 

– Sheila C.

  1. This is why you’re a favorite poet of mine whose work I love to read: multi-layered with many possible interpretations (end of the world, end of a relationship, et. al.) and simple, yet complex. I very much like the dialogue included.
