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.

I don't think I've read yours yet. I will have to go check them out. But it's funny that you interpreted this as upbeat. That wasn't the way it came out to me. (Of course, that's the interesting thing about poetry!)
