for Chrissy

proper deviant
unique in every way
a flock of fools
could be changed by you

you had been before
your time–a gift to be
given back at just
the right moment

timely perfection

Who knows how long I will write these poems that come to me when my cousin’s voice enters my mind. I am compiling them and will have a chapbook of at least fifteen to gift to my family. We lost an angel but heaven has gained another.

A musical reflection of what I feel when I think of my beautiful cousin. She loved Nina Simone.
