At Plaza Square

At “Plaza" square  
Where sugary stars kindle for the evening,  
A forgetting child wake up from the nap, 
Weeping over, dull night where the time flee  
as water drains into along distance-

Long evening, tossing transparent spirit 
By light clouds, drizzle on sad memory,
I wasn't ready. Were memories dragging me
 In four directions .I can’t shape my self 
With all these colorful faces. I can’t shape
My heart with all emptiness I carry.
I walked like a wildcat, dense round,
Didn't know what to do among all
Glittering shadows floating through the air 
Till found my fingers ticking on the marble table,
Looking for cigarettes and dying to do something 
Ridiculous, dancing around fire at square maybe, 
But I was thinking of you.

Sadness grows rapidly such as
Bud on a branch in April 
An arm and a leg, and leaf, leaf.
From a yellow fruit, to water, to cloud 
Floating in the air then falls as a stone 
On a forgetting child where her tongue
Of wood, heart a pane of ice and feet soaked
So deep in the cold "Plaza"square.
