Today I watched you

Throw away your words

Beautiful words balled up

Casually tossed in the trash

Reduced to rubbish

I would have gladly

Reused them as my own

Recycled them

How cavalier you are with your gift

‘As t’were a careless trifle.’

Thirteen years old

Reckless with the power

Of the pen
