Shore of My Heart

I only stared
at the wreckage of
Hurricane Sandy
through an 11×17
framed print
hanging in a museum

and frame after frame
my heart swelled up
overlapping with tears
The bitterness in me washed away
like your memories or
your front door
and I couldn’t watch it anymore

Painful moments almost akin to 9/11
so, I walked out the gallery door
and on to the next one–
