So I Wrote a Poem

I don’t have the patience
or vocabulary to describe
the walk well. Light yellow,
soft green, so many greens.

I guess the light was
dappled on the mosses.
It was spring all afternoon,
smelled good and warm.

In the nice outside-ness
I forgot to be lonely
or sad. I felt like me.
I don’t know the science,

there have probably been
studies, poems for sure—
I don’t have the patience
to read them, or research,

but the colors and light,
swollen feet and hummus,
made me feel better, good.
So I wrote a poem.

I hope one day I'm as cool as you are, Mr. Tucker.
