Re-Visiting Miss Helen      7/21/12


Helen keeps time with the beat, perfectly …

Sitting in her wheel chair,

Dancing hand to hand,

Swaying side to side,

Singing, smiling …

With the hint of a shimmy

She draws me into herself,

Drawing me out of myself,

And with a gasp of jubilation

She expels the poison of the day.


And I think to myself

This might be the best thing

I have ever done.
