Cupboards and Clouds

The mind consists
of cupboards and clouds

If your thoughts contain a door
you’re in a cupboard
with handles and hinges
and a nice coat of paint
that’s okay

Clouds can be huge
but usually they’re not
A dream, a memory
those are the golden clouds
Another dream, another memory
those are the other clouds
darker, paler
either way you know what they are

It’s good to put your clouds in cupboards
but if you think too much
about anything
the cloud will grow big
slip out the door
and lose that nice neat square shape

Enshrouded in clouds
enspoken in speaking
better hope it’s a golden one
that’s okay
