Advice from a Friend — A Poem

“Prayer” — C.Birde, 7/20

Who spoke those words…?


gently she insists

it was not her

(though they sound so like

a consolation

she might offer up to soothe



Sly mystery.

No solution other than

the words themselves.

Expectation versus serenity…

Vice versa.

For mercy’s sake,

for sense of self,

arrange them
