If you have lost the sun, it's at HealthPartners corporate offices in Bloomington, Minnesota

If you have lost the sun
it's at HealthPartners corporate offices
in Bloomington, Minnesota

If you don't believe me be in the car
tomorrow morning just as the night
has put its phone on do not disturb
and the day is drinking its first pot of tea
Darjeeling, of course

Look up just as you are rounding the soft curve
of 494 West into Bloomington
now it's natural when rounding a curve to the left
to look to the right
but don't look to the right
yes, there are fir trees to the right, and birch
and the possibility of deer
in some sort of gulch
but when you are looking for the sun
if you've seen one gulch
you've seen them all

If a plane the size of the universe
seems aimed for the landing spot
you didn't know was on the top of your car
you have reached the airport
where the terminals once named
for the best and brightest of Minnesota
are now renamed 1 and 2
You have gone too far

Go around and start over
what does gas mileage matter
when you have lost the sun

Hurry

Look up just as you round the soft curve
of 494 West into Bloomington
and look to the left
you will see HealthPartners
corporate offices
off in the distance
the blue building
a solid wall of blaze gold
with jagged finger edges of fire

  1. Oooo... we have a building that does that here. Very cool and blinding all at the same time.
