Zoe Shares Her Space…

Dear friends, I hope you don’t mind, but my human, Emily, apparently needs some attention. She asked if she could take my spot this month to show off share something she wrote recently. I thought, Yeah, why not? I can use a break. So, I’m sharing my space so she can share her poem. And, without further ado, here it is. Now excuse me . . . I’m going to go chill out in my condo.

Unjust Desserts

Sitting cross-legged on a concrete bench

Taking in the action just beyond the fence

He watches the bustle, pinstripes abound

And children playing, they fall on the ground

Miniskirts taunt him, smiles on a face

Tease him with heels and a hint of lace

No girl in his corner, no warm memories

Of deep secret kisses or silky panties

He wants to be cool, he wants to take part

Something is hurting, it feels like his heart

His mind is straining to block out the noise

As voices repeat “you’re not one of the boys”

The white coats stand by, uncaring and chill

Holding his pre-dinner dosing of pills

He sits in the daylight unwarmed by the sun

Sipping a 16-ounce Pepsi with a sweet honey bun.
