"It came without bells or whistles" -Dr. Suess-


Here and there
are pieces of my mind.
They resemble sea glass
and could easily be mistaken for
a shard of a wine bottle
broken in a lovers' spat
and swallowed whole by the brine
decades ago.

I have a fear,
that someday there will be a
field trip to my mind,
and bright sunburned children
will trip over my being
like a beach
and pick up all the little
sea glass bits of
me.

Hey, congrats on the three back to back editors' chioces. This poem is very beautiful. I love the metaphors and the images in it. This poem may seem overly simple but it has a deep meaning to it. And the title is captivating.
