Poem: “ReEntry Girl”

ReEntry Girl

ReEntry Girl begins to paint,

begins her retablo, her prayer

after a long, long convo with Frida K—

a conversation which puts her head

back where it belongs

in the clouds

in the dream

in the colors

and shapes

Where she smells the memory of

being nine years old . . .

of being well deep inside,

And she starts to write:  Thanks to G-d for delivering me . . .

while other people die.
