Corners of the Heart

i say
to an eight year old
‘draw me a heart’
and when i ask
why it’s angled
he so blithely answers
‘so we can fit more stuff in it’

  1. in cozy corner of his heart/ space jostles/ to shuffle & rearrange/ many games, twilight tales, so many friends/ in the end one image “MOM” expands to fill all space!!

  2. when we mouth desire
    for love and to be loved
    every cup becomes a heart
    and every heart a dove
    we know why the truth
    finds homes in what a child rings
    belling lanterns held in the dark
    those songs that spark what smiles sing

    bella e innocentemente estatica!!!
