Issue 10: Reality/Illusion

by Lily-Jean Paterson

by Veronika Csonka

I don’t need the sore and the pain
of far-flung reality:
the wind caresses my face,
the sea mist embraces me.
A tropical kiss from the sun,
as though on pear-golden sand,
reaches me to fill up my lung
with a cocktail in my hand.
Who cares for maybes and ifs?
From myself, I’m long miles away.
I’m dancing the ‘hoola’ dance suit
in an awakening rain.
As snow would make winter clear,
I still need a smile that is real.
