wednesday words | string bags of oranges

Things just seem to fall apart,
String bags full of oranges
And things within the heart;

Calamities evaporate and memories depart.
People laugh at anything
And things just fall apart.

Things just seem to fall apart
by Michael Leunig
(Poems 1972-2002)

One of my most favoured poems from contemporary Australian poet & artist.
Happy hump day!
