Molly Murray

Old Friend

I probably won’t stop listening
to hear my name in your voice
all in capitals

Three marks at the end
like we’re jumping
arms waving like birds

“Poetry matters because it expresses feeling like a piece of music or a piece of art; it captures a moment like a photograph; there is no better way to connect with the world than by reading or writing a poem.”
