This is What We Wonder ~ Seth Jani


When the moon raises its mast
Amongst the trees
They glow like bone-bright cages
In the night
And you stumble through the wood
Trying to pull one over
On the arresting wind.

The world is a prison perhaps,
Or maybe a pitying shelter
Built up to blind us
From the darkness overhead.

Either way we push the borders daily.
Always wondering if on the other side
We will uncover
Some marvelous secret
Or just the shambles after the show:
The goddess who revokes all I Love Yous,
The scenery dragged out
To a dumpster in the rain.
