I found beauty in a bottle cap

I found beauty in a bottle cap

Just a little to the side of the blue water

And I didn’t silence it

But it tried to silence me

 

If I were dreaming

There’d be two of you

One to smile

One to trip and fall

 

And you’d be reflected

In a polished rock

Until all that stone became flesh

And you walked away again

 

And back again

To wonder at my bottle cap

And rub your hairy arm

Up against my boney wrist

 

I left beauty in a bottle cap

Just a little to the side of the green grass

And I didn’t silence it

And no one can silence me

The End
