In the Overall

I had words in my head
to address the overall
he interrupted thought
said, “What about him if
I don’t take care of me?”

He is right as it is about
having a child again
complete responsibility
for someone else who 
depends upon me. 

In the overall is demand
and I am swimming away
from the octopus sucking
me down a dark crevasse
I had words in my head.

  1. Keep those words in your head, and keep getting them out there......and here! The last stanza (and the idea of the octopus) is such a good metaphor, Willow.
