Pretty Princess

Trade up,
they said,
in all things –

lovers and
places to put
your pillows.

This tower
is taller

and the world
seems smaller,

the same kingdom
just a different view.

The sky
looks pink
from up here
upon waking

and there isn’t
a single ripple
on the river.

And if you
were new
you’d convince
yourself that
the world was
a quiet place.

Calming.

Like the
right lover
or perfect
pillow.

But if trading up
means leaving
the past behind

how can you find

up

without recalling

down.

This tower
is taller

and the world
seems smaller

But the pillows
are perfect
and as for the
right lover…

what do you
think this is,

a fairy tale?
