Poem : Adandoned

I was screaming for mama,

with my one year old lungs,

spilling snot and saliva,

when she disappeared

into the door of a plane,

she became a mirage of memory.

She blurred into make believe,

a figment of my tiny imagination,

a temporary shelter, mama.

They were my runaway family

on the runway climbing aboard,

to the dream of freedom in America.

Once in a lifetime,

Mama was beholding me,

singing into my eyes and baby heart,

then ghostlike gone forever.

Red plastic glossy sandals,

that’s what I let myself remember

wearing flamenco scarlet

candied, ruby and buckled

enclosing my tiny toes.

Falling tears patterned them wet

in a sparkling rain of sorrow.
