  You could have a big dipper   

Gerberas for sale by Damien Posterino

Start that carousel,

another day among the throng.

Cement squeezes dreams cold,

blood drains again like water

through the grates

under my feet

on the street.

Her gerberas used to call to me;

Red, orange, yellow and pink

celebrations to make time stop.

They were messages just for me,

a line or two of cockney fun.

The morning sun has set

behind our moment gone for good.

Her song for sale has spun away.
