cedarmyna: illustrated image of a white bird on a branch at night (Default)
[personal profile] cedarmyna
i picture myself dying as i walk down pitt street

it's all about the way the ants come into sharp relief
as they run through the cracks in the sidewalk
as my head hits the pavement,
colliding head-on and then rushing past each other
like magnets attracting then repulsing
like commuters grabbing a newspaper while catching a train

and the way the sun melts
into my skin, like a kiss

and the footsteps going past
private metronomes
a hundred thousand heartbeats
ticking patiently along
a hundred thousand alarms ready to go off

the world is so beautiful
as soon as we see it clearly
the only thing left to do is go blind.
