  October's Child

Shades Of Life

Touching shades of life with the tips of my fingers
Scissoring bits and pieces to glue what lingers
At half past tomorrow, I'll pencil them there
The digital-hipsters, of the green grass square



Sketching flesh and bones as they saunter by
Ribs of humanity underneath a blue sky
I capture diversity with life's colorful- ink
With a quill of thought that unlocks what I think



I listen to the ramblings; non-committal banalities
Java-spun lingo, sporting Starbuck personalities
I'll map out their words under soap-carved skies
And trickle-paint their cheeks with silent cries



In my Louis Vuitton, I carry paper and pens
To write of laminated bones and howling winds
Of green fields sleeping beneath the morning sun
Of lilac stained memories that soon blur and run
