POPO2022 day 21 — la gitana safety matches

card 21 la gitana safety matches resized

Coney Island days
when the seeing eye promised
forever summer

Coney Island days
barkers, music; languid nights
cool sands, lapping waves

when the eye promised
doubt’s voice drowned in salty breeze
and children’s laughter

forever summer
I remember our love then
and am young again
