the box

click the thumbnails, to enlarge …

a world that stops revolving around its axis

suddenly

then unexpectedly retrogrades

I feel two sudden shocks
I nearly fall

the waters move
into the other direction

home’s not far
there’s a bus to the skyport
for about 50 euro

someone from home
is already on it.

I need to change
my intergalactic valuta

just before sunrise
a plane looks like a firebird
a boy’s desire to travel
a man’s mental restraint not to

still living in that box

  1. Here is to learning to gracefully ride those unexpected retrogrades… looking like you are doing it beautifully with eyes that can see such ribbons of light and sky.

    Breath in deeply and celebrate. No chemical soup can ever lastingly harm the heart of the eternal boy in the man who travels sight seeing through the living lens of love. -x.M
