A Poem for the Last Person I Spoke With on the Phone

So grateful to have you in our lives again

Especially for your listening ears when I need to vent

And you know I’m here for you

And your struggles with losing weight

Or losing your running shoes

Or losing your mind

When it comes to staying sane

I feel your pain

But at least we can laugh about it

Or about crying while running on a treadmill

Or my lack of fine parenting skills

And we’ll cry from laughing so hard

But that’s just me doing my part

Because we’re bonding, bitch.

This lovely ode has been submitted to Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop.
