Today's poem is by Tina Parker

My Four-Year-Old Asks What Happens When People Die and When I Hesitate She Answers Her Own Question

First they wake up on the day they’re going to die

And they pack up all their clothes

And they say goodbye to their mama and goodbye

To their daddy

They go to a different state and find a nice empty

House that’s quiet and a good soft bed

And they lie down.
