Content warning:


one day when I was small I crawled inside a grandfather paradox, 

curled up in the tock-tick-tock,

became a chrononaut, born in the deep

dark of a time cave. I would be there for all time,

forever exploring, a time spelunker

 

every second I become something new, with

a clock for a heart and the clocked tick-tock

of a watch for blood in my veins. no beginning or end

in the deep dark of the hour, no longer than one and no shorter than none

every second I discover something new, with

a clock for my breath and the clocked tick-tock

of a watch for air in my lungs. there are no words to speak 

in the deep dark of the hour, no longer than one and no shorter than none

The land burns so hot and high tonight that Let can see its orange glow even from the heart of The City of Birds. It burns so thick she can taste the whole year’s growth of leaves and branches on her lips. It burns so fast she can almost hear the deer and cottontails scream as flames outrun them and devour them whole.
I writhe in bed with fever, chills, chatters and shivers. The near becomes far as the far comes close.
No one gets married before going to space.
