Blanket - by Rand

as a toddler
i didn't have
a bankie
a binkie
but rather
a blue walrus
i slept with
and took with me
wherever i went

the last time
i saw him*
he had one eye
and a tusk was
barely hanging on
to his smiling
blue face

*many years ago

  1. I have found
    That even as the years go by
    That I have a penchant
    For clinging tight to a teddy
    I preferring a specific covering
    Above all else.
    Because when times are rough
    And I'm all alone,
    I know the two will never
    Abandon me.
