Poem: “Like Sun” by Caleb Fisher-Wirth


Fisher-Wirth - Like Sun

“Like Sun”

I don’t remember this:

drooling in my crib,

the mom whose name I didn’t yet know,

sipping herb tea,

a loving gaze like sun on my back.

She would sing a song invented for me:




Rays of sun with dust dancing through them,

streaming on to me

as I hugged my stuffed pig.

Time . . . well, time has been time to me.

I’ve been good and bad, and

I’m sure

this did happen.

-Caleb Fisher-Wirth
