Dear person I hate
i‘m sorry you were not truly loved
and that it made you cruel.
i want you to know that sometimes otters hold hands
when they are sleeping, so
that they won’t drift away from
someday i hope you find your otter.
i hope they give you all the love
that your daddy didn’t give you,
and kiss you on every inch of your
body that your mommy missed.
i wish you fall in love
and write poetry
consisting of words you never knew
resided in your head.
then i wish she leaves you;
breaking you like my grandfather’s old record player,
and forgetting you like a mother forgets
her daughter’s second word.
