Just As Good As Heaven - Poem by Robert Rorabeck

Showing up as I am building to you these news songs—
Cannot you see the Ferris wheels standing
And waiting outside of your window
Crouching as a pet of inexhaustible lights
And flooding the bays of your eyes
With the brilliant methodologies
That galvanized Don Quixote into action—
Making you want to abandon the tiny-hearted gold
Fish you found there
To leave her on one of those thirty second rides
With only a paper ribbon and
A rubber bow—
And go off somewhere, metamorphosed into the
To find another love that waits for you,
Crouched in a brilliant pillar of smoke undulating
In a yellow amphitheater
That looks just as good as heaven.
