She Said It Better...

...than I ever could.

The evening sent me spinning.
Dizzy from the nonstop
narration,
instruction,
prevention
that I holler out, like a caller at a square dance
for feral cats.

The words are genius, a beautiful word picture of events and emotions all too familiar to moms and dads. Head on over to Boy Crazy to read the rest of her wonderful poem, "current."

  1. Thank you, Jennifer. I always feel a little angsty after stepping out of my public-writing comfort zone (um...poetry??) but your supportive comments have really put me at ease. Thank you for that.
