to walk into the unknown
and walk out
the other side
to hold the world
with unscathed hands
and know the truth
in a google search
like an army of warrior lights
take over the city skyline
with the descent of dusk
a firmament of
at your fingertips
the world is
what you could
get your hands on to

cracked nutshells
that would not pry open still
scattered rhinestones
starfishes on popsicles
another mental floss
twinkling on the sand
a paper boat
with yesterday’s news
upturned paper cups
carrying unfinished chatter

what do you want?
how much of it
could you hold on to?
will you unfold the world?
and let it breathe
start afresh
and uncreased

this world
like a sheet of paper
crumpled up
folded in halves
then a second time
and then a third
and then again
till the time
you could fold no more
and the fingers hurt

will you let it go
or will you go again
and that’s all you know
could have ever known
will ever do
to overdo
past pursuit
to an unaccounted for
beyond repair
or acknowledgement
in receipt

churning replicas
reload, aim, and fire
blowing your brains off
to find salvation
in repetition
become a retrospection
of the aftermath

a million combinations
always adding up
to this bullion
of happenstances
each waiting to be replayed
to be subscribed to
promising this time no ads
only more of the same

is this for real
or this is just once again
just one
of those times
the great wheel
of continuity
pulled it through
like it was supposed to
like it will always do
with or without you

and what are you
but a lego brick
doubling up
every morning
to fall in place
to make it rise
and come sundown
to be put back into
your little baskets
not as what
you were
the day before
or a million more
before still
but that you will
not complain
to unbecome
and to be again
