Little Bird

Composed 6/8/16
Description: n/a

Hello, little bird
I can see the sadness in your eyes
How I yearn to pick you up and hold you
In my hands and
Keep you away from the fox that thinks
He’s a friend
But I can only keep an eye
Peeked over at your nest
Whisper from afar
And rush with open palms
When you fall

Customer Service

Composed 12/12/14
Description: Thoughts from on the job.

they tell you
to expect the outburst and
keep your smile along with your calm
see the message
the good and redirect
spread words like warm sugar
touches like ocean breeze kisses
listen
(really)
protect
never raise the temperature beyond
how they like their coffee
remember
the customer is always right
and anger is the deadliest sin
reason the temptation of fools
do it all
out of kindness and care
after all
that’s why we’re here
and I think just imagine
if we treated everyone like they were sick
