Ruth Walks In

Ruth Walks In

Ruth walks in
with universal ebb flow
but not herself, a
self-made trick.

Self-inflicted, but
not of her
doing, not embraced,
fought against, dealt with, screamed at,

Still, she sings,
this is the one sure
peace time, when all is right, when
everything works as
one, as Ruth.

Child-rearing is its
own reward,
but everything else
too, so, as soon as she could,
Ruth blossomed.

This box brought
us back together, for what?
recognition, or
a draw to move on?

In life you
do or don’t follow your heart.
Is once-a-
month coffee enough?
Yes it is, you fool.
