I wrote this poem shortly after Binx and I got together. It was a tumultuous time in my life, and she helped me through.
I wrote this poem for my little sister several years ago, when my infant niece, her baby daughter, was killed in a terrible firearms accident. Another child got ahold of a misplaced handgun, and it discharged when he accidentally dropped it. The bullet passed through my niece’s brain and tore her from our lives. It was an event that completely changed my perspective on gun ownership.
I know that things are tough right now, and many people are suffering. Here’s a little poem I wrote about my thoughts on quarantining with a significant other.
