30-Day Poetry Challenge: Day 25

Day 25: Write a poem inspired by a YouTube video. If you share your poem, be sure to share the link to the video that inspired it.

The sweetest of gestures,
simply passing a flower claw to hand,
from animal to human,
warms the depth
of my sometimes black heart.
I watch it, over and over,
and melt every time, 
wanting a baby sloth all my own,
to look at me with big, woeful eyes.

I am an editor, writer and New Yorker who has ink for blood and the blog name + tattoo to prove it. Also of note: I follow more dogs than people on Instagram. This is my blog about reading, writing and absolutely no 'rithmetic because I am horrendous at math.
