I wondered what they were thinking,

all those grinning people

standing around him

taking their selfies.

I wondered what he was thinking

but I don’t think they cared

or even noticed

that he looked strained

as if he had a problem,

looked uncomfortable

as if perched on the edge of a toilet

straining with effort.

Perhaps that was his problem,

ideas don’t come when you strain,

they float into your head dreamlike

glowing gold

as you stretch out your arms into infinity


glowing gold,

with no one around

to take selfies.
