finale

I

when i was emptied

water contained

running through

hands

i watched

the moon eat

the sun

II

i said we’ll

fight

he told me 

he could 

clearly see

do you see

that we destruct in

your hands

III

they called me the clouds

something like

white 

soft surrounding

but i was 

jagged

and you could pull

away at pieces

of my bark

IV

where is it that

you go

when you 

close

your eyes

maybe this time

lines lead you

four corners

of circles

V

do our hands

touch

across glass

i reached for 

the i

that wasn’t there

and i’ve been dissolved

in light 

into nothingness

that i never was
