A Tiny Wrench For A Poem

Updated: Oct 21

A young couple approached me

They said they’d trade me a tiny wrench for a poem

But only

If my poem was worth it


I said

My poetry is worth much much less than that

But for you two

I’d trade anything

As long

As you two souls

Stay afloat

In this abyss

We call a life



I wrote something

About them being Romeo and Juliet

Poison

And the abyss


I still have the wrench


And for some reason


I am proud to have earned it


It even came with a tiny case.





They seemed so young and happy

And

I miss those days.
