Loneliness is
a child spinning a top
on an abandoned sidewalk.

Loneliness is
a rose petal that fell on
a rock.

Loneliness is
the sun...
don't you think it's lonely?

Or the moon maybe?
Don't you think
it's lonely too?

But spare me the epitomes
of loneliness,
for if I were the sun
or the child,the dog, or the rose petal
Loneliness would be
a top spinning by the hand,the sun shining for the world,
the moon glowing for the night,
and a rose petal
falling for

Now, is this loneliness?
