Sunshine

She told me to write a poem about sunshine
and I got nothing
but that old John Denver song about sunshine
and being happy
in Colorado mountain high
country road.

And she said write a poem about love
and I got nothing
but how we all said
we wanted someone to sing
Annie’s Song
at our weddings
and some of us eventually did
except for
Theresa who married
younger than any of us
and who had a cousin
on the Polish side
screech out Ave Maria
which fit
since she was
about to sacrifice her virginity
to a dentist.
