Law of Attraction for Dummies by Mimi DiFrancesca


Untitled #18 by Larry Mawby

family movies from the 50’s:

like blowing out candles on

my fifth birthday cake.

today, my brother,

my sister, and i are alive,

along with some cousins.

everyone else is gone.

the images are gravy

on my plate, my brain

bread soaking them up,

my mind digesting

the people, the places,

now revising my memories

to include those images,

those feelings, those truths.
