Lookin at the Sun

So you want to be a drop of fresh ink
before you wash away.
Sometimes you will speak
to faces you will meet
like lookin at the sun.
You’ll dream of ironwork
and beauty lost to learn -
an issuance to come.
You’ll hold to buoyancy,
filled up literally,
for morning to be wrung.

Say where you are.

There will be times that you see that everything that you revere is blurred.
A product of the physical, the temporal, obstacle you’d burn.

You look to the land
to learn the meaning of
what it is to learn to love.
You find resilience along the waterways -
familiar and deep-set.
Out to the hinterlands,
something that’s to be had,
to be breathed or proved.
Fulcrum to bring it back,
lest it be left beyond the frame of thought you had.

Far out there -
the way that you believe,
things you want to see.
Far out there -
you are broken sweet,
stubborn as can be that way.
