Pin It

To Ann Mikolowski Without Preposition 

I miss knowing that you are somewhere
making muffins
smiling making muffins
every morning muffins
painting loved ones
baking paintings
I can see you both. Smiling.

If you would paint
from the other side your eyes
glasses. I would keep them
my pocket tiny paintings.
Tiny paintings. You wallet sized
sky-sized. The same.

Sometimes the kitchen
I see you the corner my eye
when I turn to look, you
stuck. Corner of my eye
again.
