she plays the keyboard
in broad daylight
to fight off the blues
We talk about girly stuff
and stiletto heels
She tells me about Alan
in corroboree …

… She exhibits as the most porcelain icy celestial body on the Kuiper belt
The divine tone of cello is escalating from mellow to vibrant,
lustrous to transcendental to dark…
This Used to be My Playground
…I dream of you still in black and white
Your linen shirt flying on the swing
Your manic laughter on the seesaw
This used to be my playground
This used to be my childhood dream
This used to be the place I ran to whenever I was in need of a friend
Why did it have to end…
