Fixin’ The Blues
Cynthia Wilson (Goddard College, US)
.


.
Sun goin’ down
a pink skinned peach
turns gravel
to mother-of-pearl.
Sittin’ on the porch hot
jazz beatin’ with the
rhythm of the fan,
ginger snaps warm
from the oven on
a cracked china plate
with a ten year old
tawny port, brown
and sweet like the mama
who raised you
to appreciate the fine ways
the blues come to visit.
