Swing


Another late night lights on on the freeway;
Conversation stalled– starling thoughts flying away.
Man-made clouds hang still in the cold air,
Toll-booth brake lights met with a cold stare:
The waiting is the hardest part.

Sickness in the soothsayer,
Truthless ruthless gameplayer,
Unfortunate fortuneteller,
Truthless toothless gladiator,
Glad flatterer,
Mad hatter–
Devious footsteps pitter patter.

Seat belt restrains thoughts left unsaid,
Lingering pall serpent skin unshed.
Bemused musings words now spoken–
Confidence and silence broken–
(Comfort is a lost art.)

From twenty six choices selected seven–
Three earthly words meant to convey heaven,
But falling far short,
Landing in amber:
Moments I do all renounce
(Though it’s the thought that counts)
Words do the math–
Especially division.

Sickness in the soothsayer,
Truthless ruthless gameplayer,
Unfortunate fortuneteller,
Truthless toothless gladiator,
Glad flatterer,
Mad hatter–
Devious footsteps pitter patter,
Pitter patter,
Pitter patter,
Pitter patter,
Scatter.

    Mad Hatter is trending? Must be because people are super excited for next week’s Once Upon a Time!

      If it’s trending I’ll gladly ride that wave. Never seen the show and don’t really plan on it either. Thought about deleting your comment forever since it is spam, but since I’m taking a marketing class and feeling merciful I’ll let it stand. For now.
