Poem by Sandy Schairer Jan. 30, 2010

Poem Sandy Schairer

They cow did jump over the moon
They told me so when I was four
What's more
They never told me about
The Korean War

I was 5
I could have been trusted with
that information

I'm still alive, by the way
Lived through VietNam Era:
Stoned, afraid, alone

No no Not alone
I had 2 kids, 2 parents, 4 grandparents,
and a lover Bobby
And Allen and Jay and Rod
And whatever that guy's name
In the next apartment was
Not necessarily in that order

I danced back then
On self-medication
Alcoholic Beverage

I danced again 40 years later!
It was FINE

I love myself now
And I'm recovering from...from...???
All of it!
I give myself permission
Always and forever.
