“Mid-Way Point” by L. K. Thayer


with angels
watching over me
my eyes swell with
longing to see
more than I can
know or explain

the days in and
out of weeks
in this

weeping willow year
gone by

we are weathered
like leather worn
by a rodeo clown
thrown off and
like a weed

the anvil is heavy
yammering in
my head

the melancholy
on a fawns tail

and I

in the mid of life
seem just

to unfold

watch me now

as I take hold
