From Under the Grey

I cheer weird

Arms, akimbo

Eyes, alight

Crazy-vocal vocal chords

People shush me

Wish to hush me

But they know who’s the go-to

When they wish for a true-blue friend

They know who to see

When, at the bottom of the deep blue sea

They need to believe again

Themselves, befriend

Inhibition-free, unapologetically

Cheerleader me

Mess

Do you think back on which days were warm
It was eternally morning
No clock messing with you
11:11am, all the time
Arms overhead
Clear head
Carefree

What’s with all the ice, now, too early to the party
All the shutdowns
All roads some surprise mess
5:55pm, and always grey
Sunrise, where are you
Please rise
Sun
