Staggering!

Staggering!

1 min 19 1 min 19

Don’t be afraid.

The end of the road is so far ahead it is already behind us.

Don’t worry. Your father is only your father

Until one of you forgets. Like how the spine

Won’t remember its wings

No matter how many times our knees

Kiss the pavement. Are you listening? Maybe you shouldn’t

The most beautiful part of your body is

Wherever your mother’s shadow falls.

Here’s the house with childhood

Whittled down to a single red tripwire.


Don’t worry. Just call it horizon - you’ll never reach it.

Here’s today. Jump. I promise it’s not a lifeboat.

Don’t be afraid, the gunfire is only the sound of people

Trying to live a little longer. Get up.

The most beautiful part of your body is where it’s headed.

Do remember, loneliness is still time spent with the world. 

Here’s the room with everyone in it.

Your dead friends passing through you like wind

Through a wind chime.

Here’s a desk with the gimp leg and brick to make it last.

Yes, here’s a room so warm and blood-close,

I swear you will wake — and mistake these walls for skin!
