Poem-A-Day #117 : Poem for Saturday

Poem for Saturday

                                        There were rings -
          : : : : : : : : : :
                    a sort of idea - placed on the scalp a liniment against burning -

     You've got your head in the clouds - you are standing on the earth - you are floating atop your body - a balloon tied to a pole beating itself against the weather -

                              Gold-colored sign posts holding red-colored signs -

          Not stop signs though -

               There is a calmness in the tight feeling across your headband - the metal inside metal inside leather inside an old store room in a prison -
                                  this is not an execution per se -

Not not one either -
