Black Hairy Words on White Water

We are all
floating mystery boxes
filled with unique
personal scars
deep damage
mostly
tucked away from view
askew(ed)

Locked up tokens
mementos of the before times
not necessarily good
but better
than flashing sparks
of ironic plagues
skipped over in the flowing waters
of love
and loss
life
and the soy sauce
because IT chooses YOU

Anger and grief
utter disbelief
stone cold replicas
of hermit crabs
without their shells
it’s the hell we all achieve
we all perceive

We all perceive
from the inside-out
We create by holding on
or destroy by letting go
Yeah, you know
and now that it’s penned
it doesn’t much matter when
because John died at the end
