let me breathe

let me open up for a moment

i imagine long strands of red hair extending from a slick, white pod in open space

the star’s light is brighter than my soul, but i keep my eyes to the black and deep open

tongue-tied as the radiant exposition of the universe surrounding undoes my sanity

half-empty waste transposed over the emptiness of want

eternal suffering for understanding at the edge of man’s desires

second to none I am – an obviousness in a void of people

under the constructions of an advanced species, like lampreys

never again to step forward by our own energies

after all this I float detached above the past

looking back is looking down in this frontier

over the universal tumult a growing vibration echoes

not one sound but all in discord

each man an open vein spewing, an exposed nerve, a virus that knows pain
