Lost & Found

Lost & Found

Lately, he’s been making a drink
for himself—he calls
Lost & Found

Where in the world is it?

Where did I put that?
Oh my God!
I have been 
searching
for this for weeks.
I missed you so much!

Sipping on his capricious cocktail—
a strong mix of what is coming and leaving
he vows to stop perspiring over  
the ingredients he can always edit

He is trying to be optimistic—
and to believe all the things
are just 
where they should be

She releases

She releases

She tries to find the reason
she feels absolutely drained

Anxieties inhale her sleeping 
when she carries the weight
of a heavy day

Oh, life really is quite silly
she laughs—

and dips a toe into her bath
Water provides relief
and she releases everything



Happy New Year! I hope 2019 is a wonderful and light year for us all.
