Headline Poem 8/19/14 -- tie dye sky


tie dye sky 

swirls of cotton and candy, 
pink and blue,
 ancient lullabies combine 
with a few 
hours-before-midnight 
tie dye sky

birds of protection 
    and of prey
fly by 
with effortless effort,
stretched and smooth
 reminding me 
of you 

I will wait 
by the lopsided phone booth
covered in graffiti and 
you'll see how far I've come, 
our souls mirrored 
in the 
glass 
of bubbles and
youth

a feather floats by on 7th street,
      while the phone rings

intentions become clear,
and a new journey 
begins

hello?
