Favorite Quote:
Poetry is the soundtrack to my life, the lyrics are my thoughts accompanied by the melody of my emotions.


A square table crying
in a dusty attic
four folding chairs
easy to move, easy to lose
And the table remembers
through the golden haze of time
meals with a delicious weight
But one summer the table
was abandoned and three times a day
the folding chairs were opened
in a square but with walls between
The little table was forgotten but
as the leaves and tears continued to fall
the table was pushed up against a wall
and three chairs tried to smile wide but
even so they still cried.
