Gila River Review
Judy Wood

Adoption

those moments you spent
holding her
dreaming of your future
apart

the warmth of her hand

in yours

the softness of her cheeks

 

those moments

you cherish

will never fade

she will always be a part

of the woman you’ve become

 

If You Blink You’ll Miss Nothing

Somewhere
on an empty stretch of highway
between the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas
the sweltering heat, high rises, and palm trees of Phoenix
there stands the remnants of an old town.

A faded red and yellow sign
twisted metal fences
stacked on broken wooden doors
the All Mart boarded up forever.

Nothing to see

Nothing to do

If you blink
you’ll miss nothing
