Avoidance Issue

“AVOIDANCE ISSUE”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Who really cares about the fan fare?

When you slowly descend like a fallen leaf?

I long for October’s tender caress

In the roaring blizzard of early January.

 

Who really cares about all this fan fare?

When the full moon provokes images of lost beauty.

I search for the face of my past lover

As the thousands of cameras flicker wildly.

 

Who really cares about the fan fare?

When you aspire to find calmer terrains.

I long for the cabin in the secluded mountains

To simply get away for a while.

 

Who really cares about all this fan fare?

When human nature clouds better judgment.

I search for someone who is neutral

In this growing crowd of spectators.
