… he loves me not
shredded yellow squares
populate my wastebasket
didn’t make the cut
I’ll look for more poetic ways,
to express my life on such a day
will I laugh or dance or simply sway
to the music in my head, but nay.
I’ve found a deeper peace
a better form of quieter release
I’m learning to rhyme with greater ease
as I turn out offerings such as these.
enjoy them now before the toss
these squares will soon be naught but loss
to make the room for those of greater gloss
for I would rather these not be mossed.
