a poem by Lauren Kindle
You aren't a poem-person,
but how can you resist
I wrote it just for you,
about a rectangle as red as jam on toast,
leaning against a funny blue shape,
blue the way the sky is, sometimes...
and both these wonderful shapes, surrounded
by small, imperfect circles,
sweet as a handful
of ripe blackberries...
