Poetry Thursday

Excess

a poem that can’t possibly contain
all the things I have to say

a day where I consider abundance

a morning where I’ve just pored through
six months’ worth of blog posts
written by a friend from college and his wife
about her lymphoma
she had it in excess, but
she doesn’t have it anymore
