You can listen to this poem here.
You didn’t tell me about the alchemy of eggplant parm
how you’d wake me again and again just to look
You only told me to wish real hard
hold my hands up in a cup
to capture the agua de Jamaica flowing from the sky
Blue Moon You danced with Venus in her yellow bellbottoms
goldfish floating in her platform heels
Everybody’s heart chakra pumps and thumps
What’s the Rx today?
Christina keeps telling me eyes wide open
love tangles can boggle the goggles
switch your mind back in time it was 2007
when my heart cracked open a new life home body mind
if I hop on my bike will the San Padres tell me oso stories?
sing me mountain lion blues?
give me the key to the mane’s picket fence?
my toes know only grass sand wheel
Pacific postures pontificating
exhale you made it
sink into now
Post Script: My aunt Peggy always said, “if you can read, you can cook.” I say, if you can dream, you can cook. If you can dream, you can wish, if you can wish you, you can live up to your dreams.”
