It Won't Do

It Won't Do

To dream of caramel

It’s amazing, the sudden detachment
Who am I now who was I four months ago who was I last month who was I last week who was I yesterday?
What was on my mind who was on my mind what IS my mind
Even I don’t know anymore

I’m in the corner right there
The night sun beams at me
I manage to catch a glimpse of its gloating brightness
It fades to a rainbow and then to iron
As deep as dust collected over centuries
Incredible beauty only to stir despair

I look at my hands
I look straight ahead
I walk right on
