seems like i’m never coming home

November 30, 2006

headache.  eadhhace.  eahedha.

who are you?
are you who.

i am the only one who knows
(am i?)
i am the only one who
(am i?)
i am the only one

i am.

we were – were we?
we are – are we?
we will be – be will we?

such a palindrome.emordnilap a hcus

we were not
(because i can’t remember for certain)
we are not
(and so it is)
we will not be
(because the world keeps running,
dark waters and titanium moons)

a selfish standing secret
alone in remembering
keeping quiet,
rioting jangling mindless thoughts.

slip-sliding along, winter’s slight
illuminated in infinity
ghostly hands over ghostly lands
dreamsicle darkness
night trailing ailing fingers
florescent luminescence


walking. alone and not alone –
hands in my pockets,
holding tight to

and holding out
dark to light
love to fight

wanting to watch Orion dance,
that waltz you denied him.

he’ll show me how.

  1. this poem is infinite — like when you stare at the sky for hours on a summer night.
