Lately yesterday, lost in thoughts
of solar unattainment, I met the windwalkers,
copper blood and lightning’s megahertz whispers.
An intergalactic basket, delivered to the wrong address,
a three much like an eight,
turned out to be a hamster who used to be a synonym,
five parts fantasy, each alone and falling.
My parachute had opened gently,
though the air was thin,
and atmospheric heartbeats
were rushing in my ears.
Oh look, a guinea pig emoji,
oversimplified, never thinking
through perception to the superficies of time.
Deija washed away the yellow paint
with a bucketful of Windex.
I’m asleep in the forever bus,
while Deija drives down longitudes,
through deficits in squares, islands in the cities,
navigating corridors of power grids,
to where botanic bones are burning
in equatorial flames.
The ripple of the waters,
ice floes once, sliced by oars
beneath the burbling thunder.
Your rowing’s slowed to a tidal drift.
you’ve missed your destination on the panascopic shores,
a screensaver is cycling in your eyes.
The windwalkers have taught me
of a faraway electric sky,
of subtle scalar fields,
of auroral ambiguity.
To float in silence, to not look down.
Integral equations, closed collision operators,
a dichotomy, and you.
Fluffy hydrolithic clouds, Mesozoic reflections,
fish on fire in the river.
It starts, it stops, it’s out of seamless order,
my timeline deck's been shuffled.
Your DNA is Lisp encoded,
programmed in recursion.
Every human’s made of future memories,
starting at the extro, running to the intro.
define life(living & life(living & life(living & …
I wouldn’t put that in your resumé.
First the body. Attach yourself with strings of dreams,
with bio chimeras and ligamental armatures.
to continue, with Cm or a cat, chinaware or crystal, cephalopods or cappuccino, or with anything at all.
