Egypt
Through Harold’s Lens:

Waves of desert sand
Weaving around me
Luxor
Primary School
Before opening bell.

Hundreds of angels
Laughing & playing
Swirls of pink & purple & blue.

School uniforms you know

Pig tails & flowers & bows
Missing toofies
Teeny ear rings
Tiny headbands
Bridging swirling hair.

Giggling, running,
Jumping, sliding
Swinging, singing.

Me
Smiling with love
Mr.. SLR Nikon frozen
Mr. Pen Pal poised.

Egypt’s future
Rounds the corner.

Wow!
Memorized!
Stop!

Suspended awe!
Look at those eyes!
Pools of liquid chocolate!

“Please stand still
My little Princess”.

Oh my!
How beautiful!

Eyes for my heart
Eyes for my lens
Eyes for my Nikon
Eyes for my Mac.

Eyes for my world
Eyes for Through Harold’s Lens.

“You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy, when skies are gray”

Daddy
Is it cold down there?

Are you asleep?
Can you breath?

It’s very quiet here.

A man just threw dirt
On top of your box.

Mommy says
It’s a coffin.

A man in a black suit
With a white collar
Has a black book
Open

He’s reading strange words
In an creepy language.

Mommy says
It’s Latin.

A man with a weird horn
Is squeezing a big bag
He’s playing music.

Mommy says
It’s Amazing Grace.

Everybody is
Crying
Hugging
Holding hands
Leaning on each other.

Other Mommies
Are whispering.

They are saying
You
Drank yourself death.

Other Daddies
Are talking.

They are saying
You were
A drunk.

Why Daddy?
Please help me Daddy
I love you Daddy!

Ring. Ring. Ring.
“Hello
Alcoholics Anonymous.
May I help you?”

“May name is Jason.
I’m an alcoholic.”
