Tell me about baking cherry pies
about mama’s apron stains
you sneaking into the kitchen to pull on my pigtails
me revenge-flicking back your ear
so you tell me to stop acting like a boy
Let me pout with all the weight
that a six-year-old can muster
Let you giggle in my face like blowing bubbles
because you’re older than me and can do that
Tell me bedtimes stories of all of us together
Mama’s voice a single windowsill cricket, soft and quiet,
as she reads to us Snow White
how it took seven good men to try and save a good woman
Let’s talk pony rides at the state fair
These moments I want to remember
Last year, I made a study out of rain
I wanted to write about the way it transformed
from dewdrops like tear ducts opening inside grass
to a hundred tiny silk threads atop the lawn
to chicken soup too hot to drink
and kettle steam enough to make your nose run
or burn you
Rain is simple but always changing
people are more complex but stay stagnant
My professor stopped, marked the line off for being too abstract
“Give me something better to start from. Something more concrete.” What could I say back?
It was just for once, I didn’t want to negotiate with pain
try and fill it in with more truth,
that there was never any sibling to beginwith
and it was I who had designed him here specifically to kill
him, my father
Instead, there is glass
breaking light by a million rainbows
a million unanswered prayers
scattered along the kitchen floor
There is almost-empty
sweet-potato colored whiskey
pills like spilled jellybeans on the table
and his hands
like a sledgehammer
cracking against the trunk of my mother’s neck
mama’s apron with stains not from pies
though red is red all the same.
I too, would like to start me with something different
though what could I have done about things then but try to survive
what can I do about things now
except to try and write the story happier

We love the jaunty neon signage marching across the roof of this rock-faced Wilshire storefront. #mydayinla #signgeeks #thisplacematters
