rendition or two

of all the dirty looks ever glanced by
of all the friendly shots in the air
when all the ships are tied down to wharves
when all the lawns are mowed and trimmed
if all the people hurry to make a deal
if all the deals go wrong
when all the politicians tell the truth
when a singer forgets the song
eyes looking into windows and doors
bow down to gently falling rage
when all the good wishes on the earth
are found and kept hidden in a cage
 
*this is from the colouring book for baby jesus. Found just outside jerusalem at the time of the inca.
