Mist is a Calming Weather

Mist is a calming weather

It soothes all the fire in your guts,

Silences the seas in your head,

The electricity in your veins.

 

The piano in my ear mixes with the ambulance sirens,

As the scaffolding dances around an ornate building,

Unrefined but structured.

 

An old man walks with his chin to his chest,

Heels clipping the ground

And a ludicrous smile upon his face,

Wider than the mist.

And he is dancing.

 

Down the steps, in the courtyard,

There is a couple

And they are still in love,

Holding each other with their eyes but not with their hands,

As friends chatter on beside them,

And they are paying attention and not

Like new lovers do.

 

I am alone and all is background noise.

The street lamps are not turned on.

There is no light but an ambient grey.

And it is beautiful.

 

And it is beautiful.

 

And it is beautiful.
