Burning Trees

At 2 PM every work day afternoon
Rose breasted grosbeaks croon
When you can see the sun at the same time as the moon
Right when the speed of the planet and my heart are in tune
Remembering New Orleans at midnight in June
While watching weary flowers die and new ones bloom
Responsibilities like the distance between us strewn
Oblivious to anyone else entering or leaving the room
I do what I always do to calm my mental typhoon
I take a smoke break just to think about you…
