The Poetry of Rory

 

 Better This Way
(tanka’s)


always the last kid
to be seen on the playground
this his safe haven
sitting in motionless angst
soon Mom’s boyfriend goes to work

without any breakfast
he hurry’s out of the house
back to his safe place
harsh way to begin each day
soon Mom’s boyfriend returns home
