“The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say.” — Anaïs Nin


Small, sweet hands play
With the pink teacup set
She found hidden
In the closet
She asks her dolls if
They would like some more tea
And she laughs
When they oblige
And as she pours
The liquid pretend
She sings of raindrops
Going away
Her melody accompanied
By the harmony of
Stuffed bears
With red bow-ties
"You bears are lovely singers."
She believed that
They could hear her
