Recess

"Here Be Pencils" - Burgos Circle, BGC, 16 October 2015
“Here Be Pencils” – Burgos Circle, BGC, 16 October 2015

scamper like

children

across the

green expanse

before us,

play

like we

have the

time;

no cares

no heartbreaks

no meetings

no timetables

to keep.

 

scramble

down the

hillside

hand

in hand

like jack

and jill

in the

rhyme;

holding hands

sans malice

as if

we were

kindergarten tots

at recess.

 

fall asleep

beneath

the trees,

nestled

like kittens

in a

basket;

sharing

a moment

of blest

innocence

before –

again –

the world

calls us

corrupts us

ruins us

dispirits us

and –

again –

pulls us

apart.
