On a Cloud Floating By

Im on a cloud floating by and Ive gone mad but madness flows away in a tall shining work of Art and Im standing in front of a fountain and the worlds ringing down through me and there are no fields of migrants mixing hair and bone into concrete. Trucks lined up and ready. Cups of cold coffee, a Rolex and a crucifix. A girl on a payphone begging.
