Car Cash

One oppressive Sunday morning walking
out of Immaculate Conception
Helen tells Peter,
I need to give more
as a tattered teen begs after mass.

No cash, she makes a beeline for her car
July cloaking her like a blanket
Helen gladly depletes her emergency car cash

I pen poetry about love and loss, what I observe and experience — I write about hope. My writing has been described as resiliently defiant.
