Helen Vorst


When idle time is running free,
Slow rain outside clears what i see,
Your best song lyrics doubt reality,
I'm a feeling mess in the world of high-fidelity...

A 6-feet tall gay boy explains it's the dichotomy
Between what people see and what are we,
May be, he's right. So it's long ago
Since in vast see of people i only have a barley foam

That, dear, please, forgive.
I don't remember how to speak.

    Fair comment Helen we only see what we are looking to see rather than what is actually there
