the fixer.

the fixer. a poem by sandra.

Mommy, I dropped my cup
Milk is all over the floor
Don’t worry, love
I will fix it.

Daughter, I did something wrong
My tv’s stuck on channel three
I know what to do, Mom
I will fix it.

Sister, I could use your advice
You’ve been through this before
Of course I will help you, Sis
I will fix it.

Mom, I am not sure
My homework is perfect
Honey, let me see
I will fix it.

Wife, my tire is flat
Can I borrow your car?
Yes, babe, give me your keys
I will fix it.

Friend, please come over
I think I broke my blender
Be right over with mine
I will fix it.

Me, I am exhausted
I need a moment alone
Can’t let them see me break
I will fix it.


About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    Being the “gatekeeper” ( as I call it) takes tremendous energy and those who don’t play the role have difficulty understanding.
