Peace doesn't have to be a Fairytale, Singleton Hippie Art
Peace doesn't have to be a Fairytale
I turn the gilded pages,
tattered diary with the hippie swirls
and gothic font,
and read the
everyday ho-hum story of my life.
In between the sharpie doodles,
the make believe endings,
scamper like winter mice,
their skinny little tails
swishing past the punch lines.
I touch the pages
and see the little windows to peace...
buried like the prize at the bottomof the cracker jack box,
where in the midst of chaos,
an abandoned tu-tu on the stage floor....
Peace doesn't have to be a fairytale...
if you leave the windows open....
