When I think of you

When I think of you

When I think of you, I  think of the needlessness
of such thoughts too. Because it is as  simple as 
who but you that’s saved in my mind’s memory bytes.
When I think , I think of the cliff by the ocean
flat and vast at the top and wonder  why the shrine 
sitting at its foot didn’t  choose its crest as its spot.

And  I  also  think of  the  super duper timer 
in the sleeping  passenger’s brain that never fail
to wake  him  when it is time to get off the rail.
And the stupidity of the same brain that makes
him  race and jump on to the first bus he sights
that has just started to move and move too fast

leaving him dangling  from its handle bars as feet
failed to touch footboard so close but so out of sync…
