Tangent

Oh but where did I go wrong
to fall so willingly into the sticky cushion of a sunflower’s florets
in the midnight of the day
where I smell the salt of the sea flooding my lungs
there is no one I know anymore
these people have run far beyond the world
and I take a ride on the carousel a few times
the tune is too loud
there is not enough chatter as no one is here
but things are still as pretty as I remember
maybe this time I ought to join them
and see what the fuss is about.

RTH

Songs:
Punch Brothers – How to Grow a Woman from the Ground
Queen – Made in Heaven
