If Hearts, Minds and People


If hearts really did sink down in holes
Mine would have skydived down to my toes
Tumbling and tumbling till it escapes to my holed shoes
And splash finally into the potholes

If people really did get out of their mind

Traveling away from my mind, I wouldn’t mind
So long as some kinds of trouble didn’t rewind

If people really did fall in love
I would break my ribs down that fall from above
For I would leap like it’s the last chance I have

Amongst the flowers I

drinking by myself; then lifting

to drink with me, its reflection
