Into Space

September 30, 2009 at 11:56 am (Dominic Alapat, Poetry)

 

that was orange

your body went.

Into your mind,

you grooved.

What could you do

when you couldn’t

tell, when you were

not there?

 

You said there are people

and there are ghosts.

You took the sky’s blue

and swallowed it.

You took the sun

and put it in your heart.

You ate your father,

your mother.

 

Everytime the world glowed,

you remembered.

Everything, you remember.
