Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

facets

April 4, 2019

you think you know a person
he’s shy, quiet, smart
the fourth-grade champ of Connect 4
he’s just Joshua

but then he’s standing at center stage
leaning on a broom
doling out monologue
like each word is a diamond

filling the space
expanding the silence
cracking open the soul
of every person in the packed house

this, Dear Universe,
is Joshua
he brings down the house
and then sweeps up the mess
