Vowing | A Poem by JD DeHart

Knowing what a vow
means. What change
means. Writing a manual
of how to grow.

Promises are easy to
mutter in heaven’s ear,
discussions of reality
as corporeal as dissecting
imagined clouds.

But I have begun
to cast promises in stone
or clay. Making vows
set in a rigid cast. Wanting
my word to carry weight.
