Time for…

Time to clear your mind; time to become a part of the moments that string together your supposed life. Time to listen; time to hear the sequence of sounds surrounding you, made slave to entropy.

Gravity

The sparkling, dangerous, never-ending pull, the definition of down being so dependent, every molecule effected, changed, changing, [will change?] Science never was 100% at predicting outcomes.

I don’t expect that you … Continue reading The Golden Walls of Our Hearts

Reminder…

Quiet, soft stardust Encompassed, floating within the mind. The brain is considered home Neurons are sparking electric children The skull is some kind of false barrier. What is there to hold that which is made of Infinite folds beginning and ending nowhere. Colored some ever transforming shade From the center of my forehead I pluck … Continue reading Reminder…

The Drip Of A Faucet
