falling through a fake escape
through holes that hold small questions of
the gum-ball spheres we sit and wait
and watch the galaxy teeth sink in

you're melting into a beautiful form
staring past the desire to understand
in through the eyes of familiar ghosts
and your children burn to a crisp

far far into the still distance
a city run by a ghost with fingernails
collecting face inside the tips of her hands
writing history as a dark silt brown

these feathers fell as bombs
we're slowly going down
you feel the fire that was burning out
and we took a falling out of orbit

another counted sign
neon neglected shine
you dim the world to see the light
as we took a falling out of orbit

this is all my fault
dragging conscious non-willing patients
a certain kind of land-fall
the words will really hit in
I've gone to undo all
buttons holding heart and holding head
calling out all pockets
we need a replacement

so bless these words and the heat they live by
hold your own breath while you cover their eyes and
breathe out poison

I know I know it's rhetoric tired
but all the unconcerned need a melody to smoothe and average
numb and nullify
