Poem In Your Pocket

A few days ago for Poem In Your Pocket Day, I carried around a poem from Black Stars IN A White Night Sky by JonArno Lawson. I love all the poems in this book but I chose a short one called "Are You Worried?"
My daughter and I took it one step further (or maybe people are already doing this). After I read her the poem in my pocket at the end of the day, she asked if she could 'borrow' it for her pocket and bring it to school the next day. So I passed it on to her.
Yesterday I found the folded piece of paper in the dryer. I wonder how many poems ended up in laundry this week.
