My feet were shaped like buckets
that sloshed when I walked.
We had a good rain and water followed me.
I dripped on people’s carpets
and they saw me splattering
from a distance.
At least the ducks could splash
in the puddles I left behind.
Mary Bone about Mary Bone
I have been writing since the age of twelve and have had two books of poetry published. My poems have appeared in journals, magazines, newspapers and online blogs. The most recent poetry acceptances are posted at Poetry Pacific, Literary Yard, Afflatus Magazine and my poem, ”Other Warriors” will appear in the July/August issue of Oklahoma Today Magazine. I also like to draw and paint in my spare time.
