take a seat and stand…………you are the sound engineer

just
sit there
the chair is blue
my pen is
red
take the chair
i sway the words down
leaving
heart to hands
in rhythm to the sounds
you make
your mind is a beautiful
shuffle
a waltz in the
one
three
my body can’t sit still
as the words
sing in
silence for you

we will never be children again

we
can’t leave this world
disappear from
the audience
i can’t pan for gold and
wish experience of hands
and know the knowledge
is hidden within the
lines of the palm

but

the lines are hidden
the
chair is blue
and my pen is red
and it comes out to you
the
lines
this knowledge
in a sway
my
heart
