I must be
out of my balloons
to spend my time this way
to work
in cold buildings
and come home
to the bottle of Baguala.
to sit here and type
sit here and type
anew.
I have been
crazier
for worse things
and sane
for things worse than that.
but through it all
beauty and loss
struggle and foment
I have sat here
the keys pecking away
at a great Wall.
the Wall looms
as I sit here
typing in triplicate
no
way
out,
this.
