Childish Woes

By Circe Avalon

Fallin' toys
And broken joys
And every little woe

In all the world
A plastic sword
only hits so hard

Broken wheels
and childish thrills
spin a wondrous thread

If the bugs
and lazy slugs
could only bring back the dead

    This has a "so much depends on a red wheel barrow" feel to it. There's alot to dig out of so little. Love that. Reminds me, for some reason, of that Elect the Dead video. Cool stuff.

    Wow, I really feel this. I've been having a lot of issues with regression and childhood and transition.. *breathes* I just need to expand my profile so I can submit them here. This is beautifully symbolic. Amazing.
