Has anyone seen my Aura? Singleton Hippie Art, The Self Portrait

Has anyone seen My Aura?
Singleton Hippie Art (c) 2010
Self portrait of this hippie on an Empty Day
Sirens wailing slowly,
into the wind
like lazy smoke...
the sounds of the beginning
Very End
of a parade....
I sit like an old woman
crouched on the edge of the sidewalk
and pretend I'm watching the colors,
the hope floats,
the baby ballerinas,
the scary Boo-Ya! clowns
pass by.
Candies land at my feet,
Snap! Pop!
Tiny little gunpowder filled trinkets...
Things that melt in your mouth.
Things that make you jump.
And I lean forward,
stretch my fingers out
to just barely touch,
the tiny colored wrappers
close enough to taste
but I'm just pretending...
And there's nothing really there at all."
Words and Artwork (c) Singleton 2010
Watercolors, sharpies, colored markers, pencils on an Empty Day
