Mind Cages – 16/24

I place potential loversĀ into cages of my mind
they scratch numerals on bricks
to keep track of time

they usually lose it,

time is hard to catch

as am I, but a treatĀ to watch
they eventually stop counting
and hum along the tune
and realize it’s

better here

in decorated gloom

than a life of complacency

outside of the room-

because other people would

probably cage them, too
