The return of the Requiem

she paddled on butterfly boat
streaming the images of colorblind youth
capturing what’s ahead
she said:

“Build me a vision my knight in shining armor
ontop my own that gleans your co-mingle wiseole’owl smile
lets lolligag and prostrate to idles that allow and bestow
upon us
hearts here beckon a swan song with necks intwined.
Ocean edges
shells that speak the truth
sand that buries empty promises
and children that will sing us back to youth”

as she paddled and thought she was living
the various things she was thinking,

(I believe you call it day dreaming with snaggletooth inkling)

her heart exploded like never before
into a million pieces… and kind notes did follow
symphony was born into her own acquired impeccable style

Then

Motzart stole her million pieces and returned this time to play
a most serious contemplation of a requiem hell- bent on what never happened
yesterday

a tune that knew life’s endless sounds
except the listener
who ended up
deaf, blind and bound
