Cornerstone grievance designates a stationary place to mourn.
Bypassing these ordinary symbols, comes the laughter
footsteps achieve relevance
Green drapes parcel sunlight,
Dressing the room in golden strips.
Highlighting cracks in wooden furniture
Like words on a page.

Volumizes its exhaust pipe,
interrupts the standard woosh
Had in traffic noise.
Wrinkled sheets surround
And in this repose
Another job sacrificed to understand sanity. Counting pills like eyelashes. Blinking to retain a vision of the world. Fit. Fit. Fit. oneness contained among the stars.

Windows down. Traffic noise suggests their freedom. They remain hovering above the seats.
oneness among the stars.
Atop the world
Overlooking tree top spectacle.
Leaves wrinkle like sheets,
But will flake off and cheat the dust
For microscopic space.
Nowhere but the stars.
Left to go.
