“The circles you move in”

I’m curious of the circles you move in
enamored by the shapes you draw.
conjuring up your scribe of wonder
hanging on your every word.

I’m taking notes and stealing moments
the precious time you give for free.
I’m living out this moments notice
for no one else but me.

I’m listening in on conversation
lyrical wisps and turn of phrase.
the metaphor and machinations
at the beginning of each day.

I case the room for indication
your corner of a cafe blue.
all books and fascination
from literature they wrote for you.

I tore the days up one by one
and watched them burn like ember.
torching the days I held so dear
then those I don’t remember.

All composition left to chance
technique a trap you set yourself.
to prize apart your own resemblance
and free the bird inside your head.
