A Walk In The Park


Laying on the grass all day
In the park with friends
Listening to the sky speak

Talking in Chinese-
In Japanese-
(Somehow I can understand
Even though I can't speak either language)

Alphabet spaghettios
In my dish
All sounding out their letters
Saying 'Y' me?

So complex-

But the sun-set
& A Marauder showed up-
He picked us up to attend to
The fights
& Hang around with the gents-

The gents found themselves going
Downtown for drinks
& we found ourselves back at the park
Where it began-

It was late, so the cops came
Shining their lights
Down trails
As we hid
In the bend behind the shrubbery

We came out from our hiding places
After they departed
& Shuffled on home

While the bugs sang in weird rudiments
& The moon pierced our young hearts
With Lunar lovin' we wouldn't forget
