I want to feel the rush of a thousand winds incessantly pushing my sternum back against my heart. I want to taste the adrenaline in its most natural form as it flows through my veins swelled with life. I want to smell the carbon of the passing drivers concerned only with the color of a light. I want to see the sweat cloud and sting my eyes Blind me, I am unconcerned my being suffers as I push my body to the edge.
I've listened to Bowie, I've dabbled with John Obeyed there instructions and tried to get gone. I've drafted the ship and gathethered a team To disappear into space and follow my dream. Inhaling O2---helmet is on as I listen to a memorable song Major Tom? I can hear his voice now. Release. A tear falls free. As Im suspended above, Startled to come down.
Upon exiting the cabin, I undergo broken cobble beneath my bare feet. The remnants of stairs are round and mellow, Yet some rebel rocks pierce and strike. No matter, nature has willed it. Leaving land, I enter upon a man made island Planks and rods bring support coupled with stability. String hangs in abundance from rusting cleats, While dangerous protrusions threaten the innocent flesh. No matter, man has created it. As the water calls, I enter. The buoyant vessel makes for easy observation. Identifying the stagnant water, which buzzes in anticipation, Creatures utilize my being for sustenance. No matter, God has formulated them To work in unison In order to create A recurring environment.
A reflection upon my friend's lake house in Troy, NY. A broken stove, one floor, and no service.
As we fall into sleep we wish to dream, To be taken away from reality. Abandon the worries of everyday Our eyes fall shut and we fade away. Brains spark- stimulated by creativity Our eight-hour world is filled with ambiguity. An instance in an upside-down park Where the water flows up and the sun is dark. Or maybe on a decrepit moon. A safari ride. A storm’s eye. Or a plain in June. Wishing to stay, but knowing to leave Adventure cut short, yet we do not grieve. Eyes flash open, unaware Of the joyous, the cheerful, the nightmare?
