Villains and Lovers, Madmen and Clowns

There is texture where you least expect it,
textured eyes running over textured thoughts,
running over rabbits on the pavement.

Sometimes there are people riding bikes
with large carts of ice cream hinged to the back
explaining which is most flavorful,
to the weary passer-biers.
Chocolate, strawberry, vanilla
Selling ice cream to the tourists
while they casually examine the graves in the cemetery,
Poppies, peonies, carnations.

Are you the only one,
who walks slowly when you are cold,
cherishing sensation
chewing on your lips
tumbling around champagne on your tongue
conscious of the dancing of air?

Is this enough? Are you satisfied with this?
Does your life surprise, are there
any more twists? Any more secret plots to be discovered --
villains and lovers,
madmen and clowns?
