I know we are running late with this. There has been OHSOMUCH going on. But it's here now and I will do my best not to be late in the future! Without further adieu...
Blue Like Winter Skycrystal meth eyes, wild as the moon
empty as a newly dug grave
midnight blind walking
on the path of soon, child, soon
freedom whispers in her damaged ear
drowned out by too much rain
shaky stick legs walking
bruise small flowers along the way
the sound of buzzing flies is louder
than the sweet hum of somethingness
eyes blue like winter sky
searching for a place to rest
she never had a goddamned thing to give
but she'd give it all away
for something that's not nothing
for a time that's not today

Your orange skin makes me warm in December
like the Sea is a blanket to the sand
and the Sun nurtures youth to our land
i'll be Your pocket -
You may keep all Your secrets inside of me
be shy and be not
there's nothing You should be afraid of
while You're here, with me
on this Pale Blue Dot.

child from the realm of plastic garden boxes
inside a desert's bubble, a cruel Eden was
all I knew; bright painted
buildings breathing expensive perfume,
cloudless skies hidden
behind fifty foot wide pristine
symmetrical silicone glares
screaming at you to buy.
edges glimpsing a world of drought lands,
brown parched hills dreaming of blue
seen only in flat, empty,
If you did not work to keep the world alive,
if you did not permit it its surgery, its iron-lung, give
the world prosthetic limbs and pretty
them up for pretending,
it dies. And I learned
from this world, once it is dead
it is dead.
