entropy Aug 2018
weeks ago you let me know that all my fears were nonfiction
nowadays you cannot focus on my face when we speak
i think you hate seeing my tongue fidget behind my cheek
you tell me that the peach pit in my mouth will degrade my teeth
i never thought you cared much what i did or how it hurt me
unfinished? thoughts i couldnt quite nail down... i don't know.
entropy Aug 2018
the cascade of clear blue falls even in the midst of the furvous night
the call of a bird echoes cross canyons composed of ages of old
the glint off amber cliffs calls to the reflection of ancience
floors of sandstone riddled with stagnant ghosts of footprints
these paths were once walked by those larger than life

we search for purpose radiometrically
estimating the desperation in the dating
allowing our hearts to sink to an endless expanse of unexplored sediment
grasping onto the aching for the pleasure beneath the pain
self decay feels natural at the bottom of the ocean

peace comes naturally while disappearing into pieces
it will find me upon the return of the rogue daughter to the expanse in which she belongs
may my atomic descendents one day hold the fossils of my being between their fingers
let the earth shake under the feet of whom possesses my bones
and let them keep digging, let them excavate all of us whole
i don't like this! but my classmates did. from last semester :)

— The End —
