big sky in a box

and so we gather here :

like some poetry reading without a voice to hear

this is where we validate our selves

this is where we bear our musings

this is where we extend our gestures

this is where we comfort our despair

yet these are all suppositions

for this is where we’ll soon bury our dreams

this is just our lives re-imagined

this is where we look back over our shoulders

this is where we settle for good

whatever you read doesn’t matter

we’ll be all in here together

they’ll never get out

this is the place they’ve chosen

for their words and thoughts to breathe

and later cease to exist

otherwise, we have to look up to them too

understand that this is not a stepping stone

you ain’t going nowhere.

this is us —–

you reading me

me reading you
