Mandolyn ...

love became living again

there's a box with a name
full of scraps i couldn't piece together;
a number i let tease and tickle me
from signs and clocks and license plates
wherever i went
the roller coaster rush went with me-

then i met you in a funny sort of way
in a wow, what realm is this? peculiar way...
i followed the arrow and kept going,
changing from a black and white stone
to watercolor tones-
i was floating without flopping around

you placed a crimson complexion
on my face
and i crawled behind your tinted window,
waved good-bye to the distance,
let you massage my heart with pandora,
stories of country and wooden wheeled dreams,
swings made of tires and trees you could eat
laughing and feeling the deepest of things
that i never thought could exist
one word
is what it is...

four letters, two vowels...
