Laid upon you
Shedding the
Foundation of
Wrongs for
Every possibility
Daylight has to offer
& nighttime must cradle

Sentient bliss of
Darkness emerging
Brings all to surface
Cold rising star
Measures of temporality
Set upon a universe
Of sadness


A mechanism


Collapsing cacophonies

Periwinkle mindset
Baby pink chaos

All the ways we scheduled tasks. Groceries after cups of tea & loss. Costs. 

Balcony lunches. Strategizing revolved futures. Hanging roses upside down to dry them & remember the purple sky.

High up in the treetops, we talked to squirrels, sparrows, many cats. They taught us how to cook & make plans.

Spiral staircases to people in dreams. We.
