The sun shines
Hard and hot on my skin
Shining harder now than in days gone
The newspapers are full of reasons why
But the air is filled with a strange cool
The years roll
Sometimes when I'm watching The Parade
I cross my eyes to blur what passes
Like a day, a month
Like a summer and a strange cool
Even the seasons seem uncertain
The trees unsure how to be
While no one speaks a word of it
And look! Our eyes are crossed
To ward off evil, like a strange cool
We try so hard to be the same
And yes, the place still smells of stale beer
The music is still loud
But no longer sets us free
It captures those who dance and cannot sing
Snares the ones who laugh and never cry
I assume the pose of Rodin's Thinker
Or a variation on that theme by Budweiser
Occasionally shielding my eyes
From the wind of the calendar's pages
As my thoughts run strange, and cool
9 September, 1991
