In The Backyard - Poem by Matthew Rosen

As I walked away she told me to eat something.
To eat something.
To eat something.

And it’s strange, but strange is a relief
From the dog at the door and me on the floor
Ignoring my phone calls all day.

There is a voice that tells me to be strong
And to build myself up to my height.
I have been penetrated and permeated by a strange sensation.
And I let it keep my head afloat.
