The setting matters
for such a word;
it has fallen too casually into silk,
entangled itself in lace,
and skittered past the private lights
of lamps
before it found itself upon the ground;

and it has worn different patterns;
the pink tint of empty streets
made it more meaningful

over the crowded blue skies of midday;
and it has died in the coffee cups
of pellucid mornings

after the flame danced erratic in the breath
that set it free,
hacked at shadows on the wall
as it fell to me limp on
hot precipitations.

and as it was tossed from a departing cab,
and stumbled in newspapers
over tracks,
the sunrise gathered patina stains.

So never as the sun sets, or by an ocean please;
they are reserved for the future,
and I shall like to wander them
again someday.
