Good morning and welcome to this week’s Poetry Corner! Please join me in welcoming Meagan Cahuasqui!
Ding Dong, the Witch Is Drunk by Meagan Cahuasqui
Dorothy, Dorothy where you goin’? Put on your best blue dress
and watch its folds erupt like waves around your waist
as you twirl in the cyclone, unaware of the Kansas ground.
That ain’t Toto in your weaved, straw basket, but a bottle
of tequila sloshing around half empty, or is it half full?
You stumble, barefoot over the brambles and thorns
never paying any mind to the cuts and sores, soaking in the rain
and wind raging and ringing in your ears. Scarecrow across the way
forgot you like he asked you to not to do. Now he’s moved on
and you’re stuck, red shoes left behind in the mud. No place
to get like home. Yellow brick road ravaged and torn, led astray
by the call of Oz just to get blown away. Dorothy, Dorothy, why you stay?
