Things are, wrong here,
Or at least different now, space seems different now.
Time feels heavier somehow and it’s leaning on its siamese twin,
I can tell, they’re hurting
Seeing these two titans so distraught makes you wince
Like watching your dad trip on the sidewalk
Something comforts you about it though
But then we’re back to where we were
And seeing something so bossy and rigid
Unpacked and floating
Makes its power all the more crushing now
I can’t compete
A curiosity sits in the center of the room.
Multiple bodies converge around it,
Protecting, but also coveting.
Their movements are understood there is no need for messy communication.
A fish is caught out of the corner of your eye, then so are you.
A familiar rabbit rests nearby
They haven’t aged as well as you
A vessel filled with nothing showers
New York’s finest, celebrities.
Chains dance in the sky above your head
Eight, going up
We press all the buttons on this elevator,
Put a tag on air
And keep looking up.
If I stand right there, I can hear God I swear.
He can’t hear me,
But I can hear him.
A world in a can
A soul stuck in a solid place.
