Long Light and a Long Drink

"the depths of the sea are only water after all," by Michelle Kingdom

Long Light and a Long Drink

I dream of the heartland and in the dream
call it The Shire
An Enya song plays against the green
while a boy skateboards on the paved driveway

The dream is funny but it is about chasing peace

and about how in imagining a life even
and tranquil as a green lawn

I must acknowledge that without any storm or torment
it would be difficult to identify peace

And if grass could dream
it would dream of both Long Light
and a Long Drink
