Convention

A leaf is no less perfect when it yellows
Built from the same atoms as Jupiter
The red fox is just another way of looking at the world
Convention is a four-letter word that
Smiles alluringly at your every move
And turns away when you are not looking
All this mystery is just another way of saying
There are no answers — only echoes struggling
To capture the spherical nature of time
And you in the center of it all
Spinning the yarn of your dreams
To the rhythm of its heartbeat
