So Maybe I Will Inflict Some Poetry on You

Ever since,

We have wanted gardens.

Patches of dirt where nothing grows but color and form;

To fill in memories of what we no longer have.

To replace however painfully, ineffectually, what we lost.

As I wrote in the last post (and I confess my blogging here is scattered) I do not consider myself a poet. I did interview a real poet, KB Ballentine, on my podcast, so check that out on Stitcher, Apple, and Spotify, etc.
