A Poem for the Newfound

Posted on Jul 17, 2015 in All Posts, Poems

Let the women go get sushi,
and let them pay for it.
We’ll take to our deck chairs
and patio furniture
and eat hotdogs and beans.

Forget the law,
and medicine,
and theology, and
what was said.

Later, I kick pine cones
all the way to the donut shop,
and know my children love me.

For tonight we faced the devil
again, and shone
brighter than stars.
