Neon green and indigo

               What is this
  circle
                                  blipping in
        and out

we got five minutes
   then it’s back
and it’s always back
          it don’t matter

    how do you even describe
               the way the light shines
     gourdpoked and bouncing like a slinky
down the temple stairs
      of a wooden ribbed
                                                   percussion

           or a strike of lightning
     how the white
divides                            just nodding
with your headphones
               just wonderin’ things

Saponification

                     Melt down
                                             teflon
                                                           into a shiny
                                jet black
                                 serum
            pull back
                                                           and plunge
                                   until
             the halfmoon
     disappears                       dead
                   at the junction
                                                             of déjà vu

                    emerald lily
    who led
the way
                               back home
                                                strapped
                 down

      who carried
                              a lotus
               made of ash
                                         into the boiling
                        stillness
incinerates
                      like an aerosol
                                                  or a spider’s web
  made of quicksand
                                        entombs

a slight
of the hand
                                                  neurochemical
                  hijack          
                                this                   never
       happened

Just before

Have you ever crawled up to the window of your eyes?

Do you know what it’s like to die?

Have you ever flown through the night sky?

Can you see what I’m trying to imply?

Have the years just passed you by?

Do you cringe when others lie?

I know you know, but do you try?

I won’t be seeing you on the other side.
