Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

because I look

06 April 2014



I see,

penetrating, deep heat massage,

a soul warmth which

lifts me up from

the inside out …


I see,

incessant, suffocating stench,

cigarettes and gossip,

feeding my withdrawal and isolation …


I see,

a happiness parade,

flitting, twittering


an endless stream of praises …


I see,

movement, to and fro,

accompanied whooshes and quieter


all going somewhere …


I see,

growling, insatiable beast,

somewhere, over there,

across the avenue,

heard day and night,

but never seen …


I see,

nothing, and everything,

simply because

I look.
