8hz

we danced and we danced

we gave a blood sacrifice

but the rain still came

wake in an orchard

sunlight breaks through the branches

grass between my toes

some minutes later
i notice i’m on fire
the rain never comes

here we are again
the punchline to a long joke
a joke no one told

a puddle forming

a sentence left unfinished

a dish best served cold

a turn of the wheel

one more solar rotation

please keep on living

the plane dips and rocks

the vast desert beneath us

how did i get here?

so that’s the story

have i told you this before?

i lose track sometimes

i’m in a sitcom

i’m swimming in the harbour

my limbs lose function

memories rattle
at the bottom of my lungs
i know what i am

we danced and we danced

we gave a blood sacrifice

but the rain still came

three pills twice a day
i cant remember your face
i guess i dont mind

out here in the flatlands
