Room Temperature Relations

December 7, 2020 - Reflections
Room Temperature Relations

When everyone’s putting their best foot forward
Even the pot of clay has a shiny appeal
It borrows some gloss and polish just for the day
For it knows it is on the runway
If it is not sold, it will go back to the yard

Time has a way of bringing in different seasons
The mountain highs and the valley lows
It carries with it the sunshine and the night darkness
And it becomes hard to swing in the different shades
For it spells the same words with different diction

In room temperature conditions, everyone has their cool
They have the initiative to control their reactions
They can turn and twist even though they would want to stay still
And they can smile just for the optics
Because the heat is just fine for room temperature relations

A little heat and a block of snag here
And a little bit of bumps there
The seasons of life bring out the bareness of our stitches
The tides sweep back the sand back to the shore
And the dirt from the high seas finds it’s way home

The essence of walking together is to get to see through the different layers
To see the many faces under different illumination
It’s to smell the debris and taste the junk
Just to see whether you can stomach the bad and nasty
And when you say for-better-for-worse, you’re in picture of the scraps
