Secret Gardens

By Mac Guerreiro The shrubbery is overgrown, Weeds cover the flower beds, It looks like it hasn’t rained in months, Or maybe it’s rained too much in some places, Broken faucets, Brick fences, Invisible gates, Covered with persistent vines, Many roses, With twice as many thorns, What to do? Find a new plot? Start fresh? …

Ground 0

By Mac Guerreiro Eye wish eye could tell you eye deserved that, That my message warranted such a response, Maybe it did, Maybe writing and sending something so mean and aggressive made you feel better, Maybe in hurting me you felt validated, Eye know eye hurt you, Eye knew it when eye apologized, Eye felt …
