Show Notes

Hi! This year (2022), I've decided to share a poem on my blog and podcast and read it aloud. It's all a part of my quest to be brave and apparently the things that I'm scared about still include:

  1. My spoken voice
  2. My raw poems.

Thanks for being here with me and cheering me on and I hope that you can become braver this year, too!

Gabby Dog Poem

There can be no doubt,

her fluffy, furry, slobbery self

was meant to save us just not

the way she thought,

not from little gray squirrels

allegedly terrorizing the house,

standing on porch railings

as they stashed nuts

into their cheeks;

nor from Fed-Ex drivers,

obviously nefarious,

with those cardboard boxes

that could contain something awful

like ear cleaning solution or cats;

nor from the lumbering man

who drug oil lines through the snow,

hooking up house to car

like some cartoon villain ready to detonate explosives,

but from our own forever brokenness,

the way our hearts yearned

to just be loved by someone

despite all our flaws.
