Out of Your Mind


No awareness of the Other.

This is not a song of myself, this is the song

of failure. You can still see some stars

in this city. Then memories crash

into your mind of you out of your mind half naked

and horizontal staring wide-eyed

into an almost empty sky.

Your perception of those stars and of yourself.

You’d have to travel into the past

in order to fully understand

the embodiment of the body.

Memories would be brighter

if the city of your mind

was not polluted.

Although they still wouldn’t be.

In this wilderness the descent will be

unknowable, and the depth might well be

unbearable.
