Routine

Day in and day out,
They file into lines.
Up and round about,
Each takes up vines.

Bureaucracy

How long will you have to wait?
I’ll tell you how long.

That is what exists in between our ears.

And all my words flowed like a single rolling dime,
Round and round till it would stop and fall flat,
And I would pick it up again and spin it on the mat.

Amber rays of gold flood the room
Engulfing the atmosphere thick with sweat
Sweat from tireless sweeping with a broom
Consequence from a reckless bet

From your ear to your drum

for all the needs of your body and soul.
Ripe mangoes of bright yellow,
To simmer in your mouth a sweet so mellow.

Open Those Tear Stained Eyes

A single ray of sunshine breaks through the clouds...
illuminating the end of a long and winding road.
It beckons the imagination to see beyond the horizon...
and past the pitch black aftermath of one rainy episode.
