Today's poem is by Heather Christle

In the Dumps

Just because we've broken my head
doesn't mean we must glue it together
There's other work to be done
                                                and dark
grass freezing
                        There is some old light
to read by and large pink thumbs
And with my head apart
                                        I think
the world can get in easy
pound of dirt I'm holding weighs a ton
