Marc Carver- Two Poems

A song wanders around my mind
like a lost man looking for his hotel room
all he wants to do
is find a place to rest his head
and sleep.
It promises
a time
a day to come
a park and a movie
and some sangria too
It is sang gently by many
and sometimes by one.
It comes after death
as so many things do
Good to leave something behind
even if
it is not quite perfect.
The old in and out
In and out
so many good things in life go in and out.
We eat and out it comes
we sleep and out of sleep we come.
We fall in love and we fall out of love.
We become friends then we fall out.
We come into the world and we fall out of it
like a falling tree.
We think we are in
but really we are out.
We want to be in
then we know we are better being out.
We want to be inside then we want to  be out.
In out
shake it all about
neither matters too much
so don't forget to
start with the in
then worry about the out
