Sit statuesque on the edge of the bed. Cold blue morning coming over your head. Arch bare back set me thinking on love. So tie your hair back and tell me what you’re scared of.

Reach to the other side. Where all is beautiful and nothing hurts. Sell it to the bottom line: love everything and nothing hurts. No I won’t let you take my hate and I’d like to keep my fear. It’s the hurt that keeps me human. It’s the fear that lets me hear.

What’s between all the optimists and I. What money can and what it cannot buy. Elastic faith in face of your staggered monsters known to your fleeting fantasy, sliding down and sold to the man across the river. Push his boat with an addict stick. No the drugs won’t make you special, apathetic, shuddering sick. And I cannot be found comfortably numb. No comfort in the death of me, nor shantih shantih shantih out and done.

All the sounds in the spaces in between, from the lines on your palm up onto the silver screen. Battling hands in the dark look for a sign. No giving up is not a choice, no giving in won’t help you see the light
