Request Stop

fragments linger

fragments linger

 

The summer folds. Light fades

All those tourists. Now, office bound

So the to and fro of carefree feet

Are roosting. Anticipating change

Culture, fun and sun

The extremities that leisure permits

Will be put away until the pot

Permits another jaunt

Another tilt toward the far-side

Where mind, memory and hope

Are teased by vainglorious innocence

Force us in our fidgeting existence

To run risks with charlatans

And have our hard won dreams

Run aground and ruined

Or, and with this hope we persist

Our time abroad

Leaves a glow. A welcome stain

To carry home

And hope that there is more

To squeeze from the tube

Marked FUN
