I saw the moon today
its fingerprint imprints
told the shadows of an ancient
lurking, far away like myth
meets impossible moment and they
collide to make a wallpaper wonder that
wastes away into nothingness in that distant
place we call- the rest of the universe
I saw a wallpaper once, five minutes ago,
of a million stars glowing against a night sky, trapped
in a glowing box framed within another dimension-
-they call it a screensaver and it happens when I
forget this screen for five minutes- note, it is where I saw the
I killed a bird yesterday. It sat with a group on the
asphalt road peking at the pieces fallen beneath a busy
tree and I promise you I did slow down to an almost stop.
It stopped too. While the others flew away it stayed. Now I
know I should have known better but for that time, there
is no next time. There is only next time
and next time will be that time once more.
History is only an unravelling of our future laced with
the pasts wisdom. We are all old souls sentenced
to evolution and I wonder- a different wonder this time
-whether we have done it right.
