There is nowhere to walk to
circles will make you dizzy
without an object to orbit
you are adrift in your galaxy,
tossing stones into abysses
and listening for splashes,
strangling your worries with loose threads
You cannot unwind forever.
I told you not to make anything your universe.
There is enough air here
for however long you can stand it.
Stop jumping at every silhouette
to untangle your hopes from the vines and roof beams
it doesn’t mean a thing
you cannot hope him here
he cannot help you here
how long are you willing to wait
