A Measure of your MindA Poem by jinjahman
Tricks of the mind
I poured a measure of your mind
into a glass full of ice and watched
as it made from it sweet wine;
but not for my mind!
I glanced left and right crossing
the bridge to your heart; I was caught
by a briar that spat secateurs at me;
but not for my heart, no!
I shared a dance with you on a roof
made from promises; I fell to the ground
amidst the admirers gathered to see you;
but not to see my mono-dance!
I drew a line and wrote it down and
pinched some salt and licked a wound
and sat up and listened..
It was my mind and heart
both dancing to the sound
of far distant stanzas
aching on a plain empty page.
