“These things I remember,
    as I pour out my soul:”  Psalm 42:4a

i remember
the little kid splashing
with abandon in the puddles;
the teenager standing between
the bullies and the trans kid;
the grandmother teaching
other retirees how to whistle,
and i fall asleep, pouring
my soul into your heart
