Poem: Again I Fall (in love)

Again I Fall
(in love)

By: Joi Maree Flowers

Enough had some spare space
So I filled it with more of you
Again I fell in love

With no more uncovered holes to fall into
Until after awhile you do that thang you so often do
Give me more of you just when I thought I had your 100

And again I fall
And again I become amazed
To find that in me can be created more space

To feel
To hold
More love for you

Just when I thought of you I was filled
Just when I thought I could stand straight to walk
I over and over can still fall in love with you

Poem: Penny Wrapper

Penny Wrapper

By: Joi Maree Flowers

Mama always knew how to make a way
Even when a way couldn't be seen to make
Wrapped them pennies up she did
In those little brown penny wrappers

Paid that light bill she did
Paid for them groceries she did
Sometimes paid for them clothes and shoes
You think she didn't
She sure did

Poem: Untitled


By: Joi Maree Flowers

I was raised to respect
Both young and old

It didn't matter if they were
The President
The Pope
The Garbage man
Or even
The less fortunate
