April 26 #Verselove – Borrowed Lines

Borrowed Lines with Donnetta Norris, April 26, 2024

I borrowed the last line of Stacey Joy’s genetic cinquain poem for my title today.

Their Heir
How else would I know
Where this work ethic came from
Or the demand to be cute at all costs
Or this wide nose

How else would I know
That this desert is where I would take off
Or that wisdom is here in this time
Or that cheese makes everything taste better

I’m their heir
