lay down-these Albanian Days are Sweet like FruitSalad

This time we've ridden the wild horse

and stopped to drink at the watering hole
Bronx gonna bring me to my knees
the lady said she waits
all day to hear the phone ring
and to call her daughter in Italy
I have same
fight in the night
old movies frm the 30's blast
I dream Mtn stream
and daisies
The lilies are blooming
  • the lilies are blooming-

We're going on a squeegie hunt/(a child's chant/Danielle used to love)

  • This blessing from my son recants the already difficult journey ahead. We've set on goals on the impossible and yet the impossible has attached itself to us. We've wandered in to the desert before and come out with the wind howling at our feet and a fierce sense of identity.

We try to work through our fears and heartaches/life has been long and painful

We crawl to the lake on all fours/it is this gesture which brings us to the camp.The children are whistling with the birds/they have never felt better.

Back upstate where my heart stand still/where I FLOODED THE WASH house and am awaiting a big party

When I went down the basement/the snake that lives there came striding up to me and crossed over to the sculpture pedestal. I knew that he was hungry and that the frog or turtle that both live down there were not enough to satiate his love of food. I took the reptile and put him down at the canal. Strawberry preserves are boiling on the stove. I am confused about the whereabouts of some of the grandchildren. what can I can I do to let their parents know how appreciative I am at this time.

blues poem for the children of the world;cross my heart/hope to die

  • I GREW UP WITHOUT A FATHER/l said,lowering my eyes/she just looked through me/and asked if I WAS comfortable in my body.
