2 MORE POEMS ABOUT MAD PEOPLE / 1 August 2008

ECCENTRIC FISH

Eccentric fish swimming in set concrete But still making the shore Still seeing the sun Still growing flowers Still smiling in a world of endless liars.

LOST AND FOUND

It was the meeting of two minds of 2 people that were lost who discovered they were not lost at all. It was the world around them that had gone astray The World used maps like ‘work’, ‘judge’ ‘hate’ and ‘blame’ These two did not like to be in those places there was no escape except to use our own maps of ‘love’ ‘passion’ ‘art’ and ‘poetry’ But we were told: ‘There is no place for you here. Tear up you heart-shaped maps or we will tear them up for you.’ So we ran away from them followed our hearts

and found each other
