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

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
