Today (A Short Story) – Written Thursday 3rd December 1992 (Aged 17)

Today (A Short Story)

i moved along today, always facing the wind
my head was spinning out on some planet pluto
i waited at the stop for the monster with seats
it took an eternity to come
i saw a sun kissed girl from my past –
as we sat on the polluted dinosaur
we got talking real fast, education was a bore –
it was real weird, the woman of words is so absurd
got up this morning, rocked and cried because of my sleep
my hair would not cooperate and my eyes looked weak
feelings of the past are opening channels of visions –
that would never last
why do i feel so heavy will my worded friend be there
at the end, to cheer myself up –
i slip your photo into my mind and it cheered me up
but it did not make me kind
here is to lovely you, girl you are such a twirl
