Losing ends grabbing
Invisible hands

Finding blocks of air

Stay a while
When the clock strikes one
Don't reach for the door
And draw the blinds
Why are you afraid?
To return to the beginning
And linger in senses' shifting sands
Looking for the shells you left
In the burrows of my heart

Each thinks they’re alone
Turning blind

Tails leaving trails
Paws scratching
Noses pointing because
Eyes are useless here

The Rainbow Serpent
At the Edge of Myself

From the middle of the earth

Breathing fire and creation dreams
Until he took a wrong turn
And found himself
Headed up a skinny pipe
All dark and cold steel
Gurgling and clanging

At the edge of myself are
Silver fish and white turtles in
Deep blue waters where
There is no reason
