you didn’t have time for the pain
i couldn’t supply any rain
anyhow who among us
sheds only one tear?
from the right or from the left does it matter?
worm or salty does ya know…
neighbour’s water line freezes then thaws
spouting a fountain roof-top tall
bedroom carpet flooded – ruined
furnace coupler won’t couple
and it’s only mid-day monday afternoon
medicine water to her right
coffee to her left
a lung voice seys,
“are you ready yet?”
is he already gone or does it matter?
when spirit is free
and peace at heart
it does matter
if i’m not around when day next returns
so’s with my if
now i’m off
to play bouncing ball
want to come and play
