waltzing: a circle-in-a-square or a square-in-a-circle

rain of bewilderment on life's trapeze
she a prisoner in a circle, he incarcerated
in another fisher-price bubbly square

percussion of rain over the patched tin roof
reminder of steel drums at trini carnival
shallow lakes at their feet mirror ominous clouds

solitary prisoners - both - wet and cold
with time for hurling sharpened arrows
not enough pauses for reflection
smiles camouflage wayward drift as
feet waltz in poodle, destination a blur

children a post coitus inconsequence
unawares and uncaring of their morrows
splashing joyously in bacteria laden waters
the union of circle and square
shrouded in fate's mantra laden slogans
omnia vincit amor a mirage
