my new year’s acquiescence
12-month-long therapy session
image in water, here’s my first reflection

that i don’t know what to be
and another completed trip around the sun don’t change a thing
there’s just a couple things to hold
but they’re always moving far too fast, and when i have them i let go
floating further in the outer cold

the moon’s shifting phases
she’s shifting faces
says, “up there’s so consistent, but down here certainty evades us”

and she don’t know who she is
and no crab-shaped constellation makes that any different
and she’s running out of time
if the sand would just stop shifting, she’d crawl out into the light
but the nighttime lasts for days sometimes

he says we’re building toward nothing
he’s a building that’s crumbling
with loosening rivets, he could blow away with the slightest wind

and he don’t know what to say
and no amount of strangers takes the loneliness away
and he’s trying to stay awake
in his dreams he kicks a folding chair, makes a ceiling fan escape
brother, please stay

here comes the impatience of the dawn
aided by the light pollution from freeway truck stops
guess nothing real should last too long
the ice will melt from every mountain top
and then no honest soul escapes
being torn out of the sky and pulled down toward the waves
suspended in between the magnet and her solemn sway
somewhere off in the distance, i heard a voice solemnly say
“time is a broom behind us, sweeping our footsteps away…
time is a broom behind us sweeping our footsteps away…”
there’s just a couple things to hold
but they’re always moving far too fast, and when i have them i let go

and i don’t know why we’re here
lying on the rocks, the river ferries off our fears
and i’m drifting off to sleep
don’t know what’s next but rising breath, and for now that’s all i need
