All the Birthdays in a Row


All the birthdays in a row

Every day of the year, a person's birthday
Like a thousand birthday candles
stretching out to the horizon,
marking down the days of the calendar

So blow out the candles,
forget the past,
and watch the black smoke slowly rise
up to the crystal chandelier

    Every day of the year is a person's birthday...nothing to rejoice as it reduces a life by a single day.... lovely concept, , , ,10 (Report) Reply
