before i go to bed

Posted to Action Poetry




i will let
the words seep
from my fingers
like water
fluid and soft
moisturizin all
that is in its path
down my cheek
and onto reality
split atoms
without impact
shockwave personal
in my pocket
to make weight
as i feel it
restin inside
next to flesh
filled with veins and blood
that keeps me warm
and safe with self
contained productions
brought out of dirt
and into being
stars in the sky
of bluest blu
to wander
across the universe
in lighted stream
runnin down onto
the avid whiteness
leavin a trail
spoken in ancestral tongues
known through birth
i breath it out
as my eyes slowly close
goodnight
