CULTIVATING EMPOWERMENT THROUGH POETRY

I Am From Chi-town

Leave a comment

or its frontier suburb
Downers Grove

Chi-Town, home of Al Capone
White Sox, the great home to immigrants
of all types.

We had rowdy holidays
roast turkey and andanocci.

At 10 the Beatles appeared
I wanna hold your hand.
I held his picture under my pillow
Paul Paul Paul

We had Leana our springer spaniel
who could swim the Great Lake for a mile out
We lived on the Great Lake Michigan
our own little cabin

Almost paradise
sand and woods and so much water blue
endless waves and water

into the vast lake
merging into eternity

Blue water Blue water

Clear Blue Water.
