I Never Want to Stop Looking
Head full of crazy and nothing to show for it. Try to tip
the oasis before desert again—parched tongues touch—fill up
so much, so much. Carousel-horse-vicious, no brass ring
achievement, not so lucky-lucky in…need to make sense, not
count Chinese food, or spin-spin dizzy and look at clouds: a rabbit,
a duck, and in that one a god. Let the dream be the dream free,
mirrored in blue-blue, reflecting back something special, something
unlike anything. I found my truth yesterday—shattered into two
million bits—at the center, reflected, gorgeous like honey.
