Emergence- the Featured Poem June, 2021

ANNOUNCEMENT! I am so excited my newest book Cloudbreak is out in the world! Thanks to you, my readers, my friends, Indiegogo backers, Wild Women Writers poetry group members, and Poetic Matrix Press. For more information, please click on this link to the announcement post.

The Supreme Court has been on my mind recently so I have chosen to share this poem, Emergence, about a dream I actually had four years ago.

Emergence

I am invited to be the newest member
of the US Supreme Court.
I am proud to be talking to them on the phone,
and seem to hold a heavy cream-colored envelope
in my hand like a Nobel Prize.
I am called. I accept.
A life-time position sounds wonderful.
I am surprised to be so decisive
and relieved about the future.
I firmly dust off my dream hands,
eager to get started on logistics.
Need to find a house surrounded by trees
in Washington, DC ASAP.
Oh, and the physicians tell me I am pregnant.
I laugh and tell them
that is impossible, I am 64.
