Thursday Portrait

Today I am

A small blue thing

Like a marble

Or an eye

With my knees against my mouth

I am perfectly round

I am watching you

I am cold against your skin

You are perfectly reflected

I am lost inside your pocket

I am lost against

Your fingers

I am falling down the stairs

I am skipping on the sidewalk

I am thrown against the sky

I am raining down in pieces

I am scattering like light

Scattering like light

Today I am

A small blue thing

Made of china

Made of glass

I am cool and smooth and curious

I never blink

I am turning in your hand

Turning in your hand

Small blue thing

~Suzanne Vega

Fer cryin' out loud, I just wanna cream those blogger guys for this lame spacing. Don't they know we are trying to make art here? I hate the way it's all spread out all crummy like that, sheesh!
