By
   I cry. This raincoat won't keep me warm.

I laughed at hay today.

I shouted at the rain never to leave.

I told the mirror I couldn't play.

Today he gave me my heart and soul back.

Today she said she was doomed.

Today I dreamt in vain.

Today the cow fell on the moon.



I have a fear of pocket watches

little tiny umbrellas made of paper by

people I will never meet in Taiwan.

Smash the watches and burn the umbrellas

leave no evidence of this feeling.

Dead flowers in a vase of water, my

only companion.



Peter Pan has grown up, and I must

fall asleep.

Skeletons poke through my haze.

Cold hot chocolate offers sanity, or covers

the insanity.

Straighten the shirt and walk out there like a man

Talk softly and nobody hears.



Postcards from the true you.

I have no intention of going, so you stay too, please.

It's raining in Paris and I have no raincoat to keep me warm.

Night is falling and I can't catch the moon.

Here they come collecting dead flowers.
