sailing city streets
in manacles and skull caps
future held at bay

I find I always enjoy your take on the Magpie. Marvel at your skill with Haiku.

Went peaking into your profile so I could circle you on Google+ and found that you too went to your right brain about the same time I did. My sift was due to a head injury. I like to say it knocked me into my right brain.
