How do you price a roller coaster ride?
By its spontaneity or by its resistance?
There was music before the free ride into memories
speed and doubt
There was a smile too perhaps
How do you price a smile?
By its size, duration or its inherent pain?
There is a floor somewhere underneath her feet
She can’t reach it
Gravity does not work
The floor keeps moving a w a y
How do you price the expression of true feelings?
By its absence or by its presence?
There are gentle words
made of struggle and broken dreams
There are soft sentences
composed of reality fragments
How do you price a tear?
By its smoothness or by its beauty?
There is a smile that was a tear
or a forced smile and two tears
pain and beauty
absence or speed
