THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Blown Fuses” by Australian poet Pam Brown: painting, tobacco, cold, memory, tangerine, stoned, wire, think, sad, way, yourself, symbols
Memories of us make me sad
When I think of the way you looked at me
And all the symbols and meanings we deciphered
The world is cold I have to add
Add the painting we visited
You have said you like to paint it yourself
Didn’t know if you mean it or you were just stoned
The wire was unsolicited
Unsolicited you kiss me
While sitting in the park watching people
Talking about life and how one day we’ll conquer
The tangerine on our knees
Knees, toes and lots of energy
You disappeared without saying a world
Did it really happen or was I just dreaming?
All that’s left is our memories
