Week 29- Heather Ouellette-Cygan

Posted: October 17, 2011 in Heather Ouellette-Cygan, Week 29



Childhood you’ve stomped

Through my life; twice

I’ve lost you and promises


Say you’ll leave again. Waltzing

Through, stirring up the ballroom,

And leaving faster than Cinderella,


On the mother who’s just

Getting started. One day, you’re

Crying, needing every thing,


Clinging to sweaters

When I try to leave.

Lasso that moment


And the moon. I’ll read

Love You Forever

One more time


Before your shoe

Tumbles down

Behind you as you run.
