Dear Charlotte

You used all
the best words in “People”
you frighteningly talented swine;
you condensed
all my emotions
into eight
perfect lines.

If I lived my life
five times over
I could not conjure beauty
for the words
you had already chosen.

In light of the poem “People” by Charlotte Zolotow. Look it up! I’m not a library service.
