to Whom it may concern,
these words on parchment
these pixels on screen
let them live on in your mind.
I hope you'll treat them kindly.
to Whom this poem is addressed,
whether you are a stranger,
a friend, my family or my lover,
regard my feelings softly.
Dear Mother Nature,
who always listens with open ears
let my words hang in your air
and drift through your wood.
these phrases you form into poems
cushion and swell the heat around your heart.
Never forget who looks back at you in the bathroom mirror.
