i need some new
signals and clues

waiting so cold

alone and eager
for those streaks

of things to come

maybe i am trying
a little too hard

everything so unsettled

in this purple light
of delirious options

floating around

like a bowl of hungry
goldfish scanning

the surface of things

as i lean back
warmed by wondering

about the hot magma

mantled a few miles under
all our neighborhoods

so near and away

in subterranean

thinking i really do

need new language
watching way too early

the southeast horizon

not even sure if that's right
it is however

exactly where the Moon

just rose up yellowy
behind the tall pines

so utterly luscious

out there and
