The Reflection

Standard

Grey and gloomy
Damp and stuffy
Car horns and puddles
Odour and dazzles
The kid dropped his paper plane
He bent down and saw it upside down
The same city
But a different sky
The same cars and marching people
But with lighter spirits
He saw it
In opposite
The child
We all missed

The Optimum

Standard

Variances
Experiences
We are different
Accept it
Trust the system
It’s the optimum

The Long Speech

Standard

A thousand words in my stomach
The utterances
All my speeches
Rolling and turning in my stomach
A million words in my belly
The pieces and bits
Silent thoughts hidden in my body
My blank eyes
My indifference
My face rarely lit
Your ears
Your hunger
I’m not gonna feed

The Shoes

Standard

What if he
The poor chap bullied
Is your favourite secret blogger
What if she
Who talks so slowly
Is the owner of that start-up
What if
Why do you
Think again
Why don’t you
If you can’t see
You can’t be
Think on your own
Do what you truly feel

The Veteran

Standard

Scary clowns
Dripping face paint
Big bloody mouth
Hysterical screams
But no soul
Dark tunnels
Eerily hollow
Looming echoes
Lethal uncertainty
But no beast
Clowns, tunnels
Danger, trouble
All in your imagined world
