Buena Vista

So I’ve heard you live in Buena Vista,

you get along so well and dress so fine,

you handle all your duties to perfection

and your friends all think that you’re divine…

I live too far away to visit daily,

and Buena Vista isn’t in my plans,

you’re far too entertained and far too busy,

and I just don’t fit in well with your new clan…

I’ve heard that Buena Vista is just lovely,

a smashing place, a real life wonderland,

full of all the magic that can really conjur,

the spirits of a long forgotten time…

But Buena Vista is just a passing fancy,

like jumpers after winter flies away,

a trolley or a bus, perhaps a lorry,

can take me to a better place to play,

to play with rays of moonshine,

to strip away the skin and mold the bones

that after all are made of clay,

a rib?


I’d rather leave that thought with you

my love,

always above all other thoughts,

always enchanting,


asking to be loved…

    Beautiful and puzzling piece. I should say masterpiece. I don’t see the end the way Brad sees it. But I – a poor biped being – am left at the mercy of interpretations. Probably there as as many interpretations as I can imagine. Superb work.
    Have a wonderful day in beautiful Valencia.

    • Hola my querida amiga, que bueno que te haya gustado… Surgió, diría yo, un tanto de la espontaneidad y otro de la intuición y después de unos días revisando, puliendo y cambiando, llegó a ser. Muchísimas gracias por tus bellas palabras que la describen tan puntualmente. Eres un verdadero amor y mucho que te lo agradezco. Un beso 🌹
