simply because you can dream, doesn’t mean that your ideas are more than fleeting the stars overhead while i sleep, flicker messages that we try to read we’re simply trying to hear, all the advice that they pour down through our ears and to our brains meet me where the sky meets the trees where the plans that we’ve laid we hope will succeed like movements in the wake of a ship we’ll leave behind a glimpse of what we fought and won for cut up the hills with black veins that will burst and wash away the world and it’s names simple geometry, flawed economics of the bad decisions we’ve made --- one day i’ll be so small i will fit in the silence between the letters of our names --- the colors and shapes and the weight of the shipwrecks that harbor in the ocean waves painting pictures of ourselves we should acknowledge with all of their somber hues grasshoppers lie heavy in wait to hear of the outcomes the choices we've made and force upon their heads crashing into windowpanes clearing all of the images conjured in vain like a rowboat making way in storms we find our way in a deluge of right and of wrong uncovered narratives wrapped in their spider-webs despite all their steady use the ever shrinking universe shows us reflections of where we're from, and head to

the moon and the earth circle around the sun but what do i know but what do i know a tree reaches up, as the wind, passes by beyond two storms beyond two storms — — a solitary bird flies back and forth between two coasts between two coasts a black sailed ship sets it’s sights on it’s home to stumble and fall stumble and fall — — amidst exploding confusion we forget our names and every night familiar stars slip farther away — — the moon and the earth circle around the sun but what do i know but what do i know a tree reaches up, as the wind, passes by beyond two storms beyond two storms a solitary bird flies back and forth between two coasts between two coasts a black sailed ship sets it’s sights on it’s home following clues in the sky the planets and the stars and the the moon and the earth circle around the sun but what do i know but what do i know

i was a ghost ship / with it's sails fully raised throughout my wandering / i could see no land the world was quiet / held up by two hands on the back of a serpent / slowly swallowing it's tail the ocean that i crossed / the waves like rolling hills slid between my fingers / like handfuls of sand — i’ve seen locusts retreating / across my moonlit bow crashing into clouds / with plans all their own and my syntax stutters / like an albatross in a storm high up on my masts / flags flutter like their own ghosts the lights they flicker / imitations of themselves trying to spell something / in some obscure code
