my MY

looked out the window
this morning in joy
wanting so much
to soak in
the rain's kisses

have 'em drip upon
my heart. needed
the cool river to
course across my sigh

got myself a surprise though..

had to squint, blink quick
squint some more
cus my eyes had
caught a glimpse of something
running, tripping almost
seemed like
it was movin mightily fast

looked like a, a grin
yes, it was....
and it was slyly glancing
back at me as i was
peering at it

i had to pause
compute why that grin
was. grinning. wiped my eyes
clear and zeroed in.
then noticed that grin thing
was walking off with
all my MY.

"when dat grin been
in my house", i pondered?

couldn't remember
decided it musta been that time i forgot
to put my faith on lockdown....

i sucked my breath in
ever so hard, girded my feet
opened the window sassily
looking at that grin like it was crazy.
jumped up and out
like superwoman
on a mission

ran after that grin so smooth
that i gave it a big fright
so much that it turned itself
into a shrillmouth scream

Lawd Jesus! i tell you that
thing threw up its hands and ran
like a lie always does. trying
ta find some cover.

that was more than
alright with me
yes, yes.
i waved it a good, good-bye.
found myself happy
cus in the course
of it all that grinturnedshrill had released
my MY. dropped it right on the red earth

there is was. all tussled up, in a heap
i let it be for awhile
wanted it to be free to turn over, into
the truth of the matter
before i picked it up again

in a lil while i stooped over
and collected it all. piece by piece.
we embraced. i looked up
arms around  my MY
all the while.
held my face to
the tears that
was drippin' down
 i felt them sing.
started my journey back inside,
grabbed a hold
of my wayward faith on the way.
found myself crossing
a threshold of peace
as my soul,
sighed rightly
and i smiled
at the reign
of things to come

my, my MY
