The Art of Letting Go

surreal poetry

Poem

 

The creature of my memory collage
Came creeping out the subway yesterday
It licked its fur as it was dirty
And looked perplexed at all the people walking
Keeping their distance

It screamed for help
Nobody answered

The rain came down colourless and empty
Making the streets heavy and long
While the creature walked its way
To the water
Where it sat on a tiny boat and waited
For the river to move

It looked in the distance
Where the bridge smiled

Suddenly the fur started falling
And the colour reappeared
Underneath the coat
It was blue and red and green and pink
A mosaic of brightness and sky

It waved to the crowd
Standing by and said

Adieu adieu
