I Wish

I wish I could sing like Patsy Cline. Or write like Alice Walker. I wish I could act like Meryl Streep. I wish I could paint like Georgia O’Keeffe.

Oh, to hell with that. I wish I could be my best me. My best self whether I was slouched in front of my computer or hanging out with a friend. If everyone was extraordinary, who would actually be extraordinary?

  1. I wish it rains tonight
    ruining the perfection
    of a sky ,star lit and bright
    Bring on precipitation

    to cloak the earth in mist
    hold it in chill’s tight fist
    The streets clog
    with night fog

    The school shut down
    and we pad around
    in our night gown
    from dusk to dawn
