to my uncle

Read Write Poem NaPoWriMo #29

to my uncle

cinnamon
will always be the smell
of joy and love
because of your baking

aggravation
will always be the game
I play with children
because of your marbles

I
will always be an organ donor
because someone gave you
a heart

you
live on
in me, darlin'
