Shorthand autobiography

By
More by this author
I was expected by death
the first day of my life.
I moved to Texas
and survived my first earthquake.

Chance found me in Europe
where I beat death three times more
to the unlucky pneumonia.
I have been everywhere
and lost anywhere you can think of.

I want to be an explorer.
I love to eat kosher.Each Jewish holiday
my family makes a feast.
I love to go against the rules,
for things that do not matter.
I live on a street that is old.

My cat's name is Dog,
and my fish to be
will be named meow.
My world is upside down.

I have seen the edge of the world
and the last city in the globe.
I am going to the top one day.
