SHELTER
(5/7/19)


"why
do you write
if you're never
going to
publish?"

hobby

therapy

some may
build birdhouses
in their
garages

to relax

to keep
busy

to have
purpose

to provide
homes
for our
feathered
friends

I write
wherever
I am

to relax

to keep
busy

to have
purpose

to provide
homes
for the thoughts
that fly about
in my head

satisfied
when I finally
see one

happily
poking out
it's head

from beneath
a title
