A Wizard’s Hat

Standard

My poem, “A Wizard’s Hat” was chosen out of 1300 submissions and published by the prestigious Dressingroom Poetry Journal http://www.dressingroompoetryjournal.com/a-wizards-hat-by-jill-carey-michaels.html
The multimedia music video I created inspired from my true life poem.

A WIZARD’S HAT
The moon and stars like a wizard’s hat welcomed June until she was gone.
When the Waffle House waitress asked if we left her tip in the bathroom,
she smiled and said, “Only kidding,” truckers smirked.
We stashed receipts in the glove box underneath antibacterial gel.
You need some out here when neon prices spike thirty cents higher and no one knows why.
Our car is a bubble of dripping ice on coins swallowed by a toll that winks
when her arm waves goodbye.
