I Do Not Mind

I do not mind
that you have forgotten
my name
I do not mind
your sleepiness and silence
I do not mind
that you cannot dance
as we used to
all those years ago
I do not mind
any of this
because you are still
here with me


Flowers Are for the Living

the church
and the graveside
were bedecked
with flower arrangements
that seemed
to vie with each other
for most important
the ones she liked best

when she
could no longer
appreciate them

    That’s what poetry is, right? Saying a lot in a few words. And you do that very well. I like how your poems get more and more spare with words, yet conveying the emotional punch.
