Ode to Billie Collins

 Poetry Challenge Day 54 (Sat 11/27/21)

Billie Collins is my hero.
I love the way he writes.
The connections he makes are so
marvelous and unexpected.

I would love to write like he does,
but then people would say
you sound just like Billie Collins.
I could probably live with that.

My daughter told me that after a year
of this nonsense, I would find my voice.
I doubt that her prediction
has the chance of becoming reality.

I’m going to give her the
benefit of the doubt,
largely because I would love to hear someone say,
“you sound a lot like Billie Collins…”
