shopping cart

waiting underneath a veil

A shabby toy left in the closet

An awareness that described peace

As something you found on the playground

Every night step closer to tip toe in the dark

Through forest hedges and pillow forts and parks that dont have names

A simple way to show you what we mean

Would be a mystery wrapped around your heart

A kite snagged in the branches of a tree

Its twisted tails and broken poles convey a greeting

Beckoning you to rescue what you once cherished

You can see it, but you cant quite reach

And, if you managed to get it down

It would never fly the same.

A shopping cart in the middle of the woods

Now how did that get here?ย 

Sometimes we feel so out of place
