The swing seat on the verandah
The most demure kind of fun
You swung by, hoping you could land her
And found her poised to perfection
Perched side saddle with a glimmer in her eye
That said you could ...
The turning begins
And I start breathing faster
Pink trees! Pink trees! Pink!
Ivy changes colour too!
So much new to me
Grass glows greener yet
With a slick varnish of rain
Please don't be concerned by all these words
That oxidize when I set them down
The ink gets blurred
And starts tattooing frown lines in my brow
My poetry is purple
It's always been that way
It scares ...
Tell me what you're seeing
Is it beautiful there?
Send me a crackling video
of the call to prayer
You're still awake until dawn,
But you're awake and smiling
There's hope lighting up the minarets
No longer remote, my tail in my mouth
I gave up my power, so won’t you come out?
I’m terrified to let you in
So take your chance before I turn around
Scamper away, on furry legs
To my icy mount, where...
I feel things that shouldn't matter
But they do to me, and I don't want them to
Which makes me want to punch a wall
I feel like the world is a treadmill
But I got all turned around
And now I'm standin...
