I write a poem a day. What is the Real Reason
behind this exercise, my Secret Motivation? What
is my actual goal? She wanted to know and wanted
me to say. Reasons and explanations.
I write a poem a day because it is Monday
or Tuesday even Wednesday because I am going
to yoga class my mother’s name was Sara she married
a man named Mike today there might be rain
a woman named Lilly called yesterday said she was
my cousin’s cousin she had a story to tell about people
I didn’t know but that didn’t matter
it was a story and Lilly told it to me.
