Quiet In A Corner


Oh, it's just little me
bending spoons over here,
just a little suspension
of disbelief,
weaving aloud
in hi-fi 3D.

Tossing offhand spells,
tossing coins in wells,
breaking humbly free,

Not for show, just for me,
like the hovering
a kite adrift
on jet streams
and anchorless dreams.

So don't you mind
my flimsy way
of spirit seeking,
flower speaking
thoughts astray,
through the looking glass
and far, far away.

Don't let
a little tryout of thesis
and my telekinesis
disturb your circles.

Let me tinker
on my own over here
for tonight
with my healing hands
and my x-ray sight.

I mean you no harm,
and however I might
I could neither destroy
nor defile anything
with this wandering soul
but my own paradise
and your sense of control.

Levitating white lies,
mayflies of faith,
flicker through fantasies
here at my folded knees
patiently humming
the rhythm of trees.

Come sit for a while,
play an hour with me.
Dance candle flames
from fingertips,
on your parted lips.

or kindly
let me be.
