O:One day



will walk away.

I will sling

the setting sun

under my shoulder

and never

look back.



will turn my head away

I’ll return

the keys

to the house

and my social skills

will gather dust.


until then

be still

my beating


For now

there’s work to be done,

deadlines to be met

roles to be played

while  on every street

promises I have made

clamour like children

singing a lost refrain

that is (for now) mine to keep.

Hush then….

and hide the dream away

remember I wait.

for that one day.
