I See a Poem

William Cody Maher (2018)

I see a poem

Walking down the street

I go the other way

I see a poem lying in the gutter

It’s not mine

Let it rot

Let it bleed to death

I see a poem

Offering hope

I report it to the police

I see a poem

Stripping away

Everything in its path

I feel no regret

I see a poem

Going into a bar

With a cigarette in its mouth

It’s my father

But he has been dead for years

I see a poem

Waiting for me to come home

But I am not a child anymore
