You’re Too Far Away

Off you go, and
The farther you walk
The closer you come.
‘Cause darling the earth’s round.

And you can only be a world away,
The diameter of the earth away.
Any farther and you’d be closer:
It’s a funny thing to say.

How far is a world away?
The distance when one’s away?

7,926.41 miles through the earth away:
12,450.76 miles on foot away.

A breath away:
The distance that dust floats, away.

The distance between black and grey, away:
The definition of a shade, away.

The tick of a clock away:
An eternity, away.

Don’t pick a flower
Before its time.
Starts as an onion
Cut it, you’ll whine.

A kiss,
They bloom.

Give it time to bloom
And nurture a while.
What once made you cry,
Grows: makes you smile.

Two lips:
A kiss.
They bloom.

You dream a simple dream:
Single note harmony.

You gaze with confusion
As I examine things
“I should not trifle over”:
Of Little stupid things
That make true harmony.

I gaze in confusion
At what you call music.

Young and Cunning

Tuck in my pockets-
A glass marble,
A fist of sand:

I sneak and I stomp
Your sand castle
Turn my shoulder
And grin as I flee.

I slip and I fall.
And you forgive.
What did you expect?
I’m a cunning three.
