clawing at the grounded moon #70
we are sustained by not being the center of the universe the center of the universe is where the two halves split we could never continue if we were once again divided the mitosis would erase the idea of nature from our minds
clawing at the grounded moon #71
was the moon thirsty was the earth tired of being worth more beneath the sun there are verses written beneath the crust of all of this those words are alone in the wind that has worked itself way down from the firmament to tease our ears on a fall day i shiver i shiver i shiver to think about what part of reality i would kiss when the final descent landed to never bounce again
clawing at the grounded moon #72
we close the eyes before we bury the body did the moon intend to blind us before before before
