To Ralphie FreeHeart


I am meat,

You are bones

When I am full

Your belly groans

Have some heart

No please, have two

Have some bread

And, birdseed  too

Tell a joke before I cry

Make me laugh

before I die

You are a bird

Without a cage

Kept away now

From your stage

I grieve for you,

You silly man

Please fly back

When you can

I’ll think of you

How could I not?

I light the candle 

I guard the pot

You haunt my dreams

Ralphie Dear

Let the ‘morrow

Find you here 

Where are you now?

As night creeps in?

Would conforming

Be such a sin?

Do not listen to me,

I know not what I say

If I could, I would put a rock on your heart

and make you stay!
