Random Poem:

a wadded up whatever
mandolyn

i wrote you
 1
i wrote you a lot  and i
 2
put you in a shoe box   and i
 3
left you to rot with the dust of days   
 4
of our inconsiderate lives   and i   
 5
 
 
never slept with soaps   or sang
 6
in opera during nap time 
 7
when a baby cried    and i
 8
couldn't get my milk to make it
 9
every three hours    enough to hold
 10
a tiny belly over   
 11
 
 
until it crawled    along the floor
 12
looking for a crumb    a thumb
 13
still snug inside a mouth
 14
too small to curse    or say a prayer
 15
and i was there     
 16
 
 
and i wrote you
 17
i wrote you a lot   and i
 18
left you to not
 19
ever know
 20
