The alarm rang for the last time;
To stop its chime
And stumbled in the dark as he got dressed.
Sings morningsong; he’s not impressed:
He feels pressed like wine.

Every day she walked past the shop window
Pretending not to look inside;
She’d stop and check reflection, seeing within
The clothes the mirror hide.
While moving away she checked her pace,
Keeping it casual and slow
While thoughts raced with dreams of gowns and lace–
Her face carried the glow.

Here lies a man whom four young men
Might easily have fit within,
Yet even four ambitious gents
Could not be chief justice and president.

On days when colors to grey keep draining
And thoughts like drops down spouts keep raining
In staining puddles muddy on the floor,
Where footprints show the traveled path from door–
On days when eyes are hard to open
And feelings tell you don’t let hope in
And you can’t keep your smile from fading:
Imagine an ostrich rollerskating.

Sleeping, but in pain:
Can’t sit up or move around–
Rescue from a friend.

The two drift together as if by accident
blown by the wind

She kept a calendar filled with all her dates
With tips on how to make the next one better,
Like: picnics aren’t the place to wear high heels
And how some things are best expressed through letter.
One day she tore it, burned it in a blaze
And warmed herself with all the previous days.

Call it what you will, it’s still the same.
The cinderblocks all stack upon each other,
The bells ring softly, fool begins to smother.
Don’t ever lie to watchful mathematician;
He’ll find the truth like x in an equation
And let you know your words just don’t add up.
