Write me a happy poem
lines where nobody dies
stanzas that don’t begin with tears
or end in somebody’s heartbreak
Write me verses
where this year finds its footing
and the next one
takes off running
I need to hear good news
even if it’s in the future.

Inspired by my mother who taught me not to assume.
I am writing 30 Poems in November to support the Center for New Americans which provides English language classes, education support and legal services assistance for immigrants in Western Massachusetts. Please see my campaign page to support this cause. Thank you, Iz.
