My Hero, Mattie

by Mark Cavanagh - Guest Writer - from Rhode Island in United States

You Could Climb

You could climb inside a strawberry and hide

or sneak into a grape and wait

you could wear green and lie flat on the grass

rent secret rooms or whole islands

you could tip a bucket over your head

pop down a man hole cover

stow away in a van

find an open grave

But why

Strawberries rot, grapes turn to raisins, lawnmowers cut, islands are lonely, buckets clang, man covers lead nowhere, stowaways get caught, graves are permanent.

The way to love when you want to run is to help
some one
