Unravelling (these caged creatures follow lines to infinity, but still don’t know where they go) (a poem)

Another phase I’m going through—until the next one.

The magic carpet ride
isn’t ours to take


Our children’s children’s children
won’t be around to tell the stories
of strawberry sleigh rides
and blurry photographs

That’ll be somebody else
with someone else
in some other place
2000 light years away


I heard someone say
the night is still young—
it’s 7 p.m. in Tokyo

I think the orchestra should be
just now beginning to play…


I was born in March
and you are a Gemini love child

Our paths cross, maybe
once in a while

The magic carpet ride
isn’t ours to take

We travel alone
