Thousands

Thousands of wishes
One for every minute
Spent day dreaming
Reading your lips
spelling my name
Summons to your ear
to hear lyrical lines
Spinning your hair and
me around your finger

Thousands of dial tones
For every call never made
Numbers never given so number
is how I’m living
Stumbling off curbs
into cars
Stepping on toes
denting walls
Skipping meals
instead of sidewalks

Thousands of ifs and whys
If meeting a friendly smile at
the breakfast table is all
we ever wanted
Why accept bribes
why enable why
exchange life for a bird
in the hand instead of
beating the bushes
for the wrinkle of the nose
the giggle and gushes

If an open mind is the
door to happiness
Why do we blindly
bounce words off
heads until hearts
lie lifeless
on the floor
of eternity

Thousands of wishes
One for every minute
