An Epiphany Through You Poem by Benjamin Michael Clark


We were sitting on
The curb in Brooklyn - Having a smoke
Outside of Pratt Art Institute-

We were talking about
What was to come in
Our lives-

I was vulnerable-
I had just broken
Up with my someone

& I said to you,
'I want to major in creative writing at Oswego, but I don't know if I'll find a job with that kind of degree after I graduate.'

You tilted your head-
Stared off into space for a moment
& I can still remember the way your lips moved when you said,
'I think you should do whatever makes you Happy.'
In your soft - breeze - like voice

& My father had told me the same thing when I was a young boy,
But not like this - Not like the way you had said it-

I felt as if I was lost
& Like I was right where I belonged at the same time
