Trinkets


By Raud Kennedy



That’ll make me happy,

Or, they’ll make me complete.

I think I want something

Or I want to be with someone,

But when I get it I want something else

And it ends up going to Goodwill

Or we split up and go our separate ways.

The repetition has revealed the pattern.

Now I don’t know what I want

And don’t trust my desires

To be anything more than distractions

Until the next shiny bobble shimmers by.





Raud Kennedy is a writer, sculptor, and dog trainer. He lives in Aloha, Oregon.
