I'm feeling a little 'meh' about this, because it doesn't say what I wanted to say, but it does say something so I'm going with it.


Anywhere Else

Separated from the heat outside
by steel and glass,
it would be easy to believe
I was anywhere,
anywhere else,
were it not for the golden-green
blur of palms in the sun
reminding me where I am.

Blue sky blends with black tar,
white clouds with white lines.
Everything is one
and I could be anywhere,
anywhere else.
It is only the golden-green –
those fronds like reaching fingers –
holding me where I am,

Or I would follow those white lines
over that black tar
until I reached that blue sky
to be anywhere,
anywhere else.

Is it just me or does this poem flow like a song? Get a guitar, a nice rythm, and you have a smashing number one hit.

I like it. :)

*giggle* I guess it kind of does.
