the planets of the other world feel it more

17 syllable ku written while listening to the music of Scott Cortez*

rising to the surface of my coffee worlds borne from a weave of guitar drones

:

she merges with the window on a Monday light is a dog she keeps for walking

:

if I hum walls will crumble or become cotton candy then I’ll wear the blue shoes

:

keep me up at night I’ll write your name with soft pencils in a camel’s eye

:

running across red fields we change our leopard’s spots and head for Paris

:

most of it made from air we lean into it through four generations

:

if anything: I watch a rose bloom in The Origin of the World

:

half the language a stranger eating take-away food she’s a dust cloud

:

a 108.000 km/hour through nowt the speed of life as we know it a boy’s ball

:

in the right pupil a revolving door to a hall for seahorses

:

that soft carpet that rough skin your virtual self gets infected too

:

mostly done by repetition life goes on your reflection: a hat

:

let’s stay where the warmth is we can speak French if you like and eat apples

:

pockets full of faces the hole you entered was the one that ate god

:

let’s move slowly not to damage the light the streets will catch us and laugh

:

born among nomads a dune is taken to the sacrificial mound

:

I’ll hide u if u want read from the book of fruit sleep just half the day

:

between my ears a melting altar for the absent some muscles hurt

:

sometimes a whale or a biscuit slowly slowly pull out squeezed and deaf

:

believe me it’s April the wind is a long cold stranger passing by

:

3000 milliseconds have you got your hat on while phoning slipfooteyestar

:

in a short life (they’re all short) eternity is a D-major chord

:

like your loved one written in Neutrino you’re older than sand and beef
