Lemon Meringue Pie

Standard

Lemon Meringue
Tang so
complex you
rush to the nearest bus stop and
see a stranger passerby
Lemon Meringue
Apple Pie.

Look into his eyes
see the faint taste of surprise
as you meet his guise
dashing,
the stop won’t stay
and you have to pay
the bus fare fee
make it down the highway free
flee, and
make it to the lonely street
stop
and savor, savor sweet
Lemon Meringue pie.

Black forest cake
dense,
nothing has been found
with such immense
strength we’ve
circumnavigated stars
to find such recompense.

Each new creation,
a new surprise
I spies
another pair of eyes
black tousers
sleek ebony collars
maybe on a whim I’ll
catch my dollars
inside the bus window
flapping like a flag
of unnoticed surrender
to my own
unnoticed
prayer;

Maybe that should get me there.

  1. This is one of your most beautiful poems – and I absolutely adore the complex rhymes. I look forward to hearing it set to your music on your next solo album as a gorgeously intriguing song….your fan for all times….
