Ring-A-Round

Ring-a-round-a-rosie
Pocket full of
Dead leaves
That were growing
Yesterday

Respectively new angles that
I don’t care to view these things from
Praying to
New angels
That were walking
Yesterday

Ashes, Ashes
Breathing smoke through my lips
The least threatening dragon
To grace the pages
Of a nursery story-book

It isn’t that we’re spinning,
Our feet firmly fixed on the ground
Which happens to be
Turning
Aimlessly through time

We all fall down.
We all fall down.
