POEM: "Assumptions We Carried"

Assumptions We Carried

                           for Lesley Boland

The carelessness of others
treasure is buried everywhere
school educates
learning can help
this love will last
and this love won’t
I am smarter than you think
things are not as bad as they look
I could have been a great sax player
in a smoke-filled room
I will never lose my mind
sunlight is not important
I can do without sleep forever
