Separateness
2.
Where is the space of a Day what can it Hold how can I Let it go Even pine trees drop their Needles they give You the slip Underfoot Brown and lifeless river Beds recede and the Deepest lakes Turn to dust Do pray tell how am I supposed to Turn away and Give you up How could you reach me How could you reach me Opposite sea In the rain and the sun All happening at once It’s all happening at once It’s all happening at once It’s all happening at once

Everything is a yin-yang Give me some time to be Give me some memory I’m open, I’m waiting Machine shells, glimpse of you In the side view Upon concrete, upon pavement Forgetting, it’s easier Take me into your blue Take me into your blue Take me into oh Take me into Into your blue Into your blue Into your blue Into your blue It’s a task The dullness the Dulling of a sense Just give me quiet Just give me some peace There’s a gateway in between And a lifetime at my feet A lifetime Take me into your blue Take me into your blue Take me into oh Take me into Into your blue Into your blue Into your blue Into your blue Your shimmer runs in spells And your shimmer runs in spells And your shimmer runs in spells And your shimmer runs in spells And your shimmer runs in spells And your shimmer runs in spells And your shimmer runs in spells And your shimmer runs in spells

Don’t Be Afraid

about

Over there, plans were made to come here, knowing it’s an erasure. A divvying up. Alone and together. In the playing of the game, tied up in knots of forgetting. Yet the wheel always turns back ‘round, opening a remembrance. Archetypal processes maneuvering through infinite combinations, falling into lockstep. A transmutation of energy. The sounds of memory, the colors shimmering, the symbols appearing. Experiencing subjectivity through the daily dulling, we are the universal to-do list. The only way is through.
