Luca – Maya Elena Jackson




I’m so free I could die.

The carnival sign said

“You can ask for anything!”

I said

“Do you have the silver ring

I found at Bookmans, and gave

To my high school boyfriend who

Wore it while he

Played the drums and

Bent its shape?

Because I am trying

To find a place where my expertise

Removing the charms from his hands

Has some sort of use again.

I am hopeful you can


When he was quiet I said

I was joking

But wasn’t.
