How to fly



Do they call you Down Syndrome

because you paint feathers and teach my cheeks how to fly over subway fences

 or because of your vanilla, soft serve smile creams 

which puddle on this sidewalk

where I just passed you carrying your mothers purse

leaking happy 

unworried about where it blows
