Ode to an Artisanal, Limited Release Plushie

by Mary E. Lowd

A Deep Sky Anchor Original


I don’t know if you would
Have made me happy
But your absence
Makes me sad

We’ll never know if you would have
Been my favorite
Toy of all
I didn’t wake up early enough
To enter the online shop
You had sold out

Oh, soft and colorful one
Small and huggable one
We’ll never know


Ah the feeling of peace
Complete and profound
When I did wake in time
The preorder email in my inbox proclaims
You are mine

Another email will come
When the time comes
For you to ship to me
And make your way home
