Warm Floors

Julio Enrique Amaya, Contributing Artist

In the windy streets
And heavy snow
the city that is
3/7 chicken 2/3 cat & ½ goat.
The place where
warm floors make
you feel home.
Warm floors; the
place that hid me
from monsters,
warm floors; the
place that made
reality into fantasy,
warm floors; the
place I didn’t
live life through
a key hole.
Those
floors of harmony
were the place
that could not
be disturbed by
the iniquity city
of Chicago.
