If It’s Real

I have finished that book with its tender characters

so real and fleshy that I worry now

what will become of those two kids?

And that boy living with his grandfather?

The two girls whose father left them?

I know somewhere that these are only characters in a book

but also too that their real-life counterparts are out there

and as they say in therapy If it’s real to the client, it’s real.

And so–Joy Rae, I hope you make good choices in life

and you too Richie and Dena and Emma and DJ

all so young and with so little to hold onto.

Hold on.
