Im happy here/But this is where we used to live

by Amy Turn Sharp


We are making birthday thank you notes today/handprints of Blaise
He thought it was fun for a few moments
then the arch of the back and the shrill:
"I will not be yr puppet"
baby roar....

I am working on some art this week
I am creating a map of the places Joe and I have lived in the past 9 years....
Valentines Day might be influencing my romantic thoughts/my historical retrospective of love
who knows
when I finish it
I think it will hang in our bedroom
I think it will remind us of
the 3000 plus days
we have spent
happy
Finn
kissing fat baby
I catch him out of the corner
of my eye
he is my supernova today
outshining all else
