DON'T MIND ME

Don’t mind me.

I don’t really live here

but I love when glitter falls

from the clouds.

 

Don’t mind me.

I don’t live here.

I am just some crazy-eyed force of nature

with a story to tell

or a friend to save

- or something.

I’ll be gone as quick as I came.

 

I say,

“Don’t mind me.”

But you know

that I can change the whole landscape

with

one

quick

shake.

    Awesome poem! I love how at the end it says "don't mind me" but you can change the whole landscape with a shake. Keep it up!

    Jessica, great work. I love the feistiness of this poem. The possibilities for interpretation are too numerous to count. I love that it can mean one thing for me and something entirely different for the next reader. Thank you for sharing.
