Ashes in the wind

Some cross

the hot sands

to reach the ocean

courting defeat

in search of potions –

while I defer

to the skies

skipping the clouds

to secure strength

in the land

of my birth –

touching the ground

to renew

the reserves

of my strength

not unike the

mythical Antaeus –

calling

the sweet name

that I’ll never besmirch –

Chicago.

Where my

heart will be found

until they scatter

my ashes

in her winds.
