Things that will never die


From the fizzling gaps between the lines,

the stars that fill the silver screen,

where rainbows end and birds fly why can’t I,

the voice falls clear as liquid light.

So far away he must be,

as far as static rocket ships can fly

through the ear

and into the silence of space,

and yet the interstices of life

are full of things that will never die.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
