new stars arrive

not really knowing
what human love is for.
delirious and wide-eyed,
tripping over themselves
to amuse you

the little baubles
silver-eyed paillettes,
a fantastic satin glance -
all these things that shine
bright, innocent

they fall to earth
so hard so fast.

needing to go up,
she got on the elevator
going down.

i would not let the Water Baby out of the house dressed like that...thats why that little girl looks so sad...no one cares enough to tell her to go put some clothes on!

steve - you're sounding like my mormon relatives!
