    Seven eleven.

    I like to think I have a place in the world
    I imagine people see me walking,
    And think there's that man, who wears the hats
    Or there's the man I've seen once before,
    Music plays of course and my footsteps mark the beat
    And I point at people I know
    With finger and thumb gun,
    Kids shout my name as I'm fun
    And mums smile,
    I jump in the air and click my heels
    Land in a dark puddle
    In a street of cold parked cars
    and wet haired cats,
    Head on home with the milk.

    For those who believe,
    no explanation is necessary.
    For those who do not,
    none will suffice.

    What a fun poem!
    Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty

    love, Love this! - particularly how it turns dark at the end. (I how it turned, and was, quite honestly waiting for such a turn).
