with our love, with our love we could change the world

In the grocery section, there’s a three year old girl, dressed in Sunday best, dangling her sock feet from the shopping cart.  Grandmother has her today.  They pass through the pet section, and she sees a cat toy, a bright birdie with rainbow tail feathers.  “Gwanny, Gwanny, I want dat!  I want dat boodie!”  She reaches.  Grandmother bends down to her with a smile, and rubs noses with her.  It’s an old trick, and Little Girl smiles, but only for a second.  The birdie still calls.  Grandmother lifts her out and holds her.  Twiddles her lips.  It never fails.  Little Girl smiles, lays her head on Gwanny’s shoulder.  They roll on.  There are smiles in the aisle.

Lee Dunn View All

Lee Dunn has been writing since the age of 18, but found that work got in the way for the ensuing 48 years. In his home town of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, he reveled in his independence at an early age, and spent as much time as he could exploring the city’s Arts scene. He was introduced to poetry and prose by the works of two literary giants, namely J.R.R. Tolkien and J.W. Lennon and thence fell in love with the written word. His work includes poetry, short fiction, and personal essays, and ranges in theme from the surreal to the horrific, nostalgic, and themes on the human condition. He has been published on Spillwords.com, The Dark Poets Club, Journal of Undiscovered Poets, Crepe & Penn Literary magazine, and the Shelburne Free Press.
