If I took a walk through your garden,
what would I see?
Told Mama I forgave her, she turned and said,
“Forgive? Girl, what ever do you mean?
‘Tuh. For what could you
possibly forgive me?!”
It is the first day of month seven and I keep forgettin’
to bring an umbrella every time I step out
Even if I did, I’d probably hold it upside down
the way men tell you to turn frowns
In an effort to catch all the blessings
(angelito manifestations; silver linings courier service)
falling to us from the sky
It is the first day of July
It’s ok, Mama,
