Sarah A. Chavez – Dear Poetry

Sarah A. Chavez

Dear Poetry,

You have given and I have 
taken. I have given and you 
have taken. One day, I could 
no longer bear the taking, 
so I set you aside. 

I thought you might 
wait. That’s what some 
of your other lovers have implied. 
They slept and slept and slept. 

On awaking, you were there. 
Stoic. Open-eyed and receptive. 
I cannot tell if I am yet awake.
