Grown Up

Child-like
yet no longer
a child, anger
grows.

Parked

I was thankful for the hot wind
stirring through the Chicago crowd
carrying the weight of my
words.

Today I sit alone
a resting place for birds
casting shade at insects —
speechless.

A candle in the dark
remains unseen
until it’s caught fire
and is burning.
