Note to self: In one breath imagine space

Note to self

Dear one

You live

By sending yourself

To another place

A tower to space

With miles of cable

And an elevator

You touch

The ground

And the sky

All in one

Breath

~ ○ ~

Celestine

Celestial

Equestrian

Gesture

A treasure

For the measure

What you sent

Not meant

Yet bent 

We went

~ ○ ~

A moment

Of clear

No fear

Our eyes know Something more

From here

In warm air

Not a minute

To spare

We take

A moment 

To love there […]

Where the robots live

2 trains away

Is where they stay

Mended cells

They fix themselves

Their wounds & wires

Hold every tell

Where the robots live

In the corners of the city

Now happy

All electricity

Note: This piece was formed out of a concept I was working with in the summer of 2020. This will be the first in a series of coming works entitled: Where the Robots Live. Please stay tuned dear blogosphere. 💜🤖

The trees eat the suns eat the trees: an other-worldly song

We bike

Sparkling roads

Under trees

Eating breeze

The trees eat

The suns eat the trees

Leaves

Flowers in seas

Afternoons

Meet the moons

The trees eat

The suns eat the trees

In evenings

Our bones

Laugh

With notes

All their own

The trees eat

The suns meet the trees
