Scenes and Sketches

Oh, how it’s been so long,
We’re so sorry we’ve been gone,
We were busy writing songs for you…



Feet disturbing rainbow puddles

Wading in the ankle-deep flood

Zephyr and rain torn in muddles

Lost in the milky film of the fog.



A shattered half-empty wineglass

Vermilion stains on cream carpet

Tongues storming off, quite crass

Tied in a fight that no one started.



Cosmopolites bustling angry in line

News swing from vine to grapevine

Suits and silk dresses, a bar rumble

Jane is lost in a crazy asphalt jungle.



Caveats written in the cigarette air

Warnings washing up in selt water

Broken glass bottles decides dares

But the last laugh goes to the waiter.



Casual conversation in the quaint quiet lattice

Tall drinks of foamy, rich, and sweetest lattes

Croissants, cakes, pastries, a phantasmagoria

A mollifying ambience far away from hysteria.
