Advice from a Friend — A Poem

“Prayer” — C.Birde, 7/20

Who spoke those words…?

Gently,

gently she insists

it was not her

(though they sound so like

a consolation

she might offer up to soothe

discontented

nerves.)

Sly mystery.

No solution other than

the words themselves.

Expectation versus serenity…

Vice versa.

For mercy’s sake,

for sense of self,

arrange them

properly.
