Morning Poem!



Memory

 

Buoys set out with traps

to catch lobsters and crabs.

 

We consume, digest, integrate

anchors that move

 

in wind and sea

and yet we hold on -

 

last night my brain tightened

in worry and concern

DNA wrapped tightly within its coils

 

like a cold-blooded snake

so I stroked it like the fur of a cat

purred it loose

 

Pried it free -

 

pride - the downfall

we catch and cache

like apples

in aprons from trees -
