Three of Clubs, Reversed

They say you don’t have to pick,
but you do, really. Mom or Dad,
Dad or Mom. All that glitter
where a cozy glow used to be.
A three-legged stool, broken,
and the broken leg is me.

  1. The story you hear so often from children in divorced families. A bit sad but nicely matched to the image of the stool.

    • It’s all rather subtle. Trying to weave together various pieces of symbolism within these very short poems. Tricky. Always glad when any piece of it comes across. 🙂 Thanks!
