Merry-Go-Round

Most of my poetry is expressed in rhyme. However a few of my poems (perhaps I should say short prose pieces) are written in a form other than rhyme. One such poem/brief prose piece is Merry-Go-Round. You can find a recording of me reading Merry-Go-Round HERE, or below:

Merry-Go-Round

Perfume once sweet palls.

Nameless faces merge into one.

Mirthless laughter and forced smiles.

Sugar coated words designed to flatter and ensnare echo hollowly down the years.

 

Escape into nature.

The wind on my face.

Birds sing.

Soon the merry-go-round will begin again.
