Perhaps the curse of New Orleans
has grabbed me by the throat
because even though
I did not drink from the Mississippi
I can't seem to break away.
Each time I return a vision of death engulfs me
I see my ashes scattered in the air,
my sprinkled body falling from the balcony
thrown onto the dancers on the street
and landing on Mardi Gras floats like beads
adorning the necks of the drunken mass.
Perhaps Marie Laveau has crossed my path
and tied me to her home.
I'm sure I'll die in the arms of the Cajun Queen.
