Smile.I've always wondered how therapists could be so disconnected from the people they see.
I suppose, after a while, all the different stories just become noise.
And it's not like the tone changes all that much.
'oh, my wife cheated on me.'
'oh, my life's a mess.'
'oh, i don't feel accepted.'
As i stare at this white bearded man from my horizontal position on the couch, I realize he doesn't really care about what my story is.
All he wants to do is find a way to shut me up.
Just like everyone else in the world.
"So." His voice echoes through the silent room, filled with pictures of his family and documents with words printed on them too long for me to even comprehend. "Tell me, How've you been since we've last spoken?"
My attention turns to the white drywall ceiling straight ahead of me, the twisting and folding shapes of the shadows against the irregular patterns of slightly raised material remind me of the nights I used to have as a child.
Nothing but my teddy bear to keep
Let the Sparrows InI.
Blackbirds rest on the power lines,
their silhouettes form the notation
to a dawn song set on the sheet music
of telephone poles contrasted by the sun.
Curled leaves are land mines littered
on the lawn where imprints of twigs
and a nurturing robin's tracks collect.
Branchlets and leaflets stem from
porch step railings and mailboxes;
the numbers read odd on the east,
even on the west side of the asphalt:
The engraved letters on
the siding reads, "Davis."
This house is home to family
so let the sparrows in.
with its branching hallways
furniture rooted to the floor
family, friends, the occasional
out from home.
Let the sparrows in; let
Let the door's
loosen—let the door stand ajar
be let open
the night owls and
let the doves
in pairs in the iridescent
Let the sparrows in.
