I wished upon a star

I had a thought 
the other day
so I tried to write 
a poem about it

Thought may be 
the wrong word
as it was more of 
a memory really

the image of red 
and yellow legos
scattered on 
brown carpet
and the smell 
of tea steeping

it was summer
somehow I knew
though the legos
nor the carpet 
gave way to that clue

the brown carpet 
was the surface
of some distant 
planet and
the legos
were slowly
becoming a
rebel base
where Luke
friends could hide
from the

so this memory 
I hadn't thought
about since
only God knows
when came
drifting through 
my mind like smoke 
drifts from a campfire

and a
rebel base

but there 
was more

cutting through
my imaginary
that took me to
a galaxy far far
away there was

the adults 
it seemed were
fighting again
and things
were being
broken again

before the
memory faded out 
of reach slowly
like a bad
I recalled
holding a up
an x wing 
in my tiny hand
as I made laser
gun noises 
louder to drown
out my parents

Luke Skywalker
was coming to rescue 
the rebels and save
the galaxy

I guess in a way
he saved me too

-Brady Perkins
 innocence preserved
