What The Soul Knows


What The Soul Knows (Randyjw; January 27, 2017)


I always loved that sabre-toothed tiger

pictured in the poster on the back of my door

Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey Circus

Come to town

The colors of the big top tent

in satiny oranges, yellows and pinks

though I never really much cared for those clowns

Artifice just simply wasn’t the device

that one ought to use in dealing with kids

though in growing old

I could see the usefulness if perused

with its rightful intent

And through it all

even in permeable, malleable mutations

I also found that I could love you

yet again, and again, and again
