Four’O Clock street

I think my legs have a favourite street

My head call it the little noon

And as I breathe in its famous sulky dust

It gives me a rare bronze taste


I remember learning about the Harvest

Afternoon of the Phoenix’s puzzle and whistling past a solitude

Your friends don’t stay and Red in cheeks becomes for the numb

Some legs swoon on the street

And some are shook by the blatant sun

I blink, trod and reflect.

What if it is the end of tunnel

and his white light is calling for an end?


So I hop upon this reawakened heroism

Believing in one last venture of a poetic death

Only to realize that I was just dazed

And tunnel was never really black.


The artificial sunflowers reply in brief.

The red brick mansion and a man smiling at ease

A lady tutoring her neighbour’s son

Why, I see it all now hun!


The stories caged in flesh are now bound by cement

Souls become Bodies and Bodies become Homes

And yet nonetheless, Stories

Like me. Just Stories.
