It’s in recovery, she said, and I didn’t question her.
A mission for a vision is stifling me.
Unabashed tapping out a tune just to clash,
It’s in the tiniest of flowers and a picture of a moon,
not your own moon, mind you
do you mind nevermind your mind?
And to your ears it would grind.
How to unknow, desensitizing.

unbelievable, the flimsy notions of knowing and being
scratched into consciousness; the ego persists to exist
and i am left standing in the midst of the seemlessness of this:
time, forking a river of blue ink on white sheets.

songwind trails behind,
thoughts unfurl and unwind.
soft gestures speak swiftly,
the heart lurches upwards
and out.
