for a person who professes not to have faith,
who eschews illogic, i find myself attributing
deep meaning to my yellow and white
striped beach towel. upon it i am somewhere else.
it is transportive, a magic carpet, taking me
to places beyond fear and despair and loneliness.
in the park today with too many people nearby
i was transported to a white-sand beach
to sit near my friend as we talked
and watched surfers and listened to gulls.
i was transported to martha's vineyard,
to the tall grass prairie, to places i have lain
and felt free of fear and despair and loneliness.
i eschew illogic, yet i find magic in yellow and white.
