You say “she’s tough”,  as though

not wearing a certain kind of skin

means you are somehow damaged

But someone, has to feel everything for the ones who don’t

These are the ones with the strongest shoulders

who always carry the heaviest things

and there is absolutely no shame

in displaying a big, tender heart

What’s in your head

No wonder it aches

Your pillow can’t hold it

and shoulders do break

Clear your mind (he says)

There’s erasers, bulldozers, explosions

Speculate on the method, since

some could cause a bit of erosion

Once you’ve got it figured out

you can then, go on to bed

where you will have made room for

the lovely, buried dreams, still

waiting inside your head
