A Gypsy Daze

poetry

original painting by the author. get a framed print here.

i pray to my dead mother
i pray to the god i know
a gypsy daze finds its way
wrapped inside a key lime pie
resting in impossible sights
it’s best to remember
Hanukkahs not spelled with a C
and relay races up the stairs
star-viewing from my canopy bed
powdered sugar constellations
evaporating time
puberty watchtower
changing minds
and
barely seeing
always feeling
dissolving newness
a birth of a new taste
with a pinch of yesterday…
