Awakening


back to
real life
we’ve all
been asleep
but dawn
brings a lucid
a picture

identity

a threat
can’t stop
you’re

satisfied please

Has Nothing Changed


when am i
where
it sounds like
alone
i don’t think so
what’s happening
its’ all gone

this is not exactly true

could stay the same
if nothing changed

seasons change
colors bloom
the rain comes
new life
a watering hole
or
metamorphosis
it happens all the time
but i’ve got this
work to finish
first
