chasing shadows again











{October 28, 2008}   ~a poem to spite Carlos-the-Jackal~

No really. It is totally written in response to part of one of our conversations, just to be obnoxious.

We will watch the sky like burros who walk in the rain
taking leisurely steps and not seeking cover
we will turn our heads up to catch rain on our tongues
and remark upon how this must be the best time to be alive

We will watch the sky like burros who slosh through the mud
laughing at the squelching mud sounds as the earth tries to devour our hooves
we will turn our heads up to watch humming thrumming dragonflies
and remark upon how this must be the best time to be alive

We will watch the sky like burros who trek through the sun
scuffing up clouds of dust with our determined hooves
we will turn our heads up to find shapes in the drifting clouds
and remark upon how this must be the best time to be alive

We will watch the sky like burros who drowse beneath the moon
making wishes with huffing breaths on dandelions
we will turn our heads up to search for shooting stars
and remark upon how this must be the best time to be alive

My friend, Carlos, would have rolled laughing in his cell without understanding every word and line of this so-called poem.

Thank you!

Although I still have no idea whether you mean that the poem is funny or incomprehensible reading that sentence. Either way, it was meant as joke, so laughter is totally the desired response. I’m calling that a win. 🙂
