Lightness of Being

(11/6/2017)


Well I see through my goggles
You
through your pictograms
When my physical state bends
I become metaphysical
Slipped lubricative
Between slits of your frame
A nail

                             I got chance to do rocking chair pose
As things get louder
       And explode in flashlights
      Stung directly in the flesh




                  I don’t mind, I hope
                                   If you recognize my statement
                            By hearing the wind blows
                                                    Which actually was caused by loudspeaker
Broken
                                            I would dare to imagine possibilities
                        If this could get heavier
                    As I long for solution,
                    Some call it graveyard
                                    Call it recycle venue if you want
                                            Or perhaps that would be too much
                                Than written line of my claims
                        I shortsightedly let myself
                                              intersected by lines of your desire
                Physical expectations
                And inspections





Technically saying; I did justice by crying
Although my eyes didn’t manage the right aperture
Nor the water, mixed sweat and cums,
The right reflectory





                This fear
                                    shakes; I was shaking
                                                  Yes I was naked I was skinless
                                    Transparent for you
                                            If you even realized I have
                                                Something more underneath
                            Than a lightness
                                        Undone by ideal beauty
                        Of the camera
