A Distant Recollection


Once upon a time

Loving Kindness

that lonesome daughter

of a sought after lover

from a far off constellation

waiting to happen …

Drifting so fine

in my distant recollection

Distracted by an attraction

to the stranger of danger

and the mother of crime

The soldier of misfortune

my brother lost

marching to another tune

on the dirty street corner

sprawling newspaper

used and discarded

“Can you spare a dime?”

scrawled on a sign

Loving Kindness …

once upon a time
