Friday Night Video: Smile

Vodpod videos no longer available.more about “Smile“, posted with vodpod (video created with Xtranormal)

And for those who like to read along with the yadda yadda, there’s more after the break.

Smile.

I was hypnotised
by a smile
at the tram-stop.

This girl was kissing
this boy
and she was smiling.

She was smiling
even when she was kissing him.

I couldn’t see his face –
he was turned away
from me,

but I could see her.
I could see her smile.
And her smile

made me smile
as I hunkered down in my coat,
put my shoulders up

against the wind
and pretended that
I wasn’t looking.

“Smile” can be found on the pages of The Third Fruit is a Bird, available in the shop.

More next week, same po-time, same po-channel.
