Random Poem:

Glitter and prayer
NicMichaels

A mother stuffs holidays
 1
with marshmallow chick sunshine -
 2
 
 
she wants you in Easter baskets all your life
 3
because
 4
                          outside the same porch,
 5
                                 on a different Sunday, comes
 6
 
 
the neighbor's family dog. His only vice
 7
actual rabbits
 8
 
 
un-seaming themselves
 9
in foil tufts. He proffers
 10
the soiling of real
 11
 
 
grass, you bury your pets
 12
with a popsicle-stick cross.
 13
Glitter, prayer. Adult
 14
 
 
curl a sermon of ribbon
 15
for little fingers to grab. But who can choose
 16
 
 
between holidays and dogs?
