Two Poems
by Casey Quinn

It's the little things

I know
you're tired

I'm tired too

Raising your voice
won't make me
move faster

Kicking me
won't either

Even though
it's your turn
to do it

I'll walk the dog

That's how much
I love you


I hate you

You changed the way
I look at life

You're proud of that

My hatred
is your victory

I want
to forgive
to be a better man

and be

But I can't
You win.
