Wait to Reflect

“The clouds / are already sold out.”

Malena Morling

A Rondeau

Take a raincheck, for medicine

Antidote comes foreign under skin

Blood rushing body next to mind

Maybe more for night, than to bind

Cure to deficiency -‘with’ to sin.

Sky crowds, does a shot -chips all in

Bets among friends -for fun, for win

Thoughts stray, songs snatch chance to rewind

Take a raincheck.

Ponds wait to reflect face, force, din

Shivers undermine the engine

Calm in ignition out to find

Where sound starts, where dreams can be mined

Before ancient tribes knew ruin

Take a raincheck.
