poem: oh, honey

by sven at 7:00 am

This was for a friend who apologized after writing a "long" email…

Oh, honey

"Oh, honey"
says the voice in my head—

a voice,
I hasten to add,
that silently chats with both
adult men, children,
and cats, too—

don't feel embarrassed
about being too long-winded.

There's plenty of air in the world
to go around.

All the better that you should get to
exhale completely.

It makes me happy:
then you get to inhale
to full lung capacity.

Everyone should get to breathe.
