a front page heart – February 2


picture in the paper

front page success

overnight and years

in the committing


beloved one putting

herself out there

for the sake of

her cares


on behalf of the rest

of us who listen

and appreciate

her insight


for the grand mothers

and daughters

and beloveds and



that she names

with their hearts

in her hand

for command.
