Tree Tops


Pat Burke

I'll keep my eyes open for the mortality 
I long to live in the tree tops 
all the free stops

you went to
the sky and back 
with a pack of happiness 
sewn through my chest 

and the music beats of my soul
distinguished like a drum 

of exuberance and passion among the men 

and the ladies the children
and the babies in the rocking cradles 

that sway in the moonlight
shining on the problems 
we can
run and hide from... 
without thought
that I have to blink every now and then.
