Poem About Gabby Dog

Hi! This year (2022), I've decided to share a poem on my blog and podcast and read it aloud. It's all a part of my quest to be brave and apparently the things that I'm scared about still include: My spoken voiceMy raw poems. Thanks for being here with me and cheering me on and I hope that you can become braver this year, too! Gabby Dog Poem There can be no doubt, her fluffy, furry, slobbery self was meant to save us just not the way she thought, not from little gray squirrels allegedly terrorizing the house, standing on porch railings as they stashed nuts into their cheeks; nor from Fed-Ex drivers, obviously nefarious, with those cardboard boxes that could contain something awful like ear cleaning solution or cats; nor from the lumbering man who drug oil lines through the snow, hooking up house to car like some cartoon villain ready to detonate explosives, but from our own forever brokenness, the way our hearts yearned to just be loved by someone despite all our flaws.

Out of Our Cages

Hi! This year (2022), I've decided to share a poem on my blog and podcast and read it aloud. It's all a part of my quest to be brave and apparently the things that I'm scared about still include: My spoken voiceMy raw poems. Thanks for being here with me and cheering me on and I hope that you can become braver this year, too! Out of Our Cages Poets speak of blossoms from brown paper bags, Walks of calmness through April days, And critics decry the lack of meter In a poem that moved thousands, Presidents and mothers included. We all climb hills. We all tumble down. We all seek meaning in signs And laden flattened boughs with words. Why can’t we find meaning in ourselves? Every day I watch our puppy wake joyous, Ready to leave her crate of wires and explore The hard wood floors of the house again and again, Each cat encounter a brave adventure; Each floor slide becomes an ode to balance. She flops asleep, exhausted and dreaming only to begin Again. Puppies look forward to hills. So can we. Hey, thanks for listening to Carrie Does Poems.

Thanks for being here with me and cheering me on, and I hope that you can become braver this year, too! POLARITIES If I were a man, would I take up all the space? I am a woman. I try to claim spaces. None are mine. If I were a man, would I shout into the world? I am a woman. I sometimes wonder what it is to not whisper. If I were a man, would I tell everyone where they should be? I am a woman. I sometimes wonder what it is to have a place. Hey, thanks for listening to Carrie Does Poems. These podcasts and more writing tips are at Carrie’s website, carriejonesbooks.blog.
